Auburn, AUM and Walter Reed Medical Center Join to Serve Those Who Served

Auburn University senior nursing student Maria May was at the hospital when she met a man in his late 60s waiting to undergo tests for potential cardiac issues.

With only a brief medical history in his chart, May thought it would be beneficial to ask some questions. The resulting conversation confirmed to her the importance of a recent trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland:

"While waiting for the test, we began to talk about his past professions. When he mentioned he had been in the U.S. Army, I asked when he was in and if he enjoyed it. He quickly said no and explained he had been drafted and sent to Vietnam. I thanked him for his service and told him that I plan to go into the U.S. Navy as a nurse after college. I also told him about my Project SERVE experience. 

This is an excellent story and it will make your proud of Auburn.  Read more and watch the video on the main Auburn University website.
