Dr. Mallory Lucier-Greer, associate professor at Auburn University, and Dr. David L. Albright, professor at the University of Alabama, have partnered with AL.com to write a monthly column called Mission: Alabama. The goals of this monthly column include:
- bringing awareness to the well-being of Service members, Veterans (SM/Vs), and their families globally and in Alabama,
- dispelling myths that surround military service,
- highlighting resources that are available across our state to serve SM/Vs and their families, and
- advocating for the needs of SM/Vs and their families.
Their first topic, The dynamics – and the needs – of military members, veterans and families have evolved, touches on how the needs of SM/Vs have changed over time, shares insights into how you can engage our nation’s SM/Vs, and informs readers what they can expect from future columns.
Check out AL.com at the end of each month to read their new monthly column.
