In advance of Veterans Day, an Adler University military psychology professor joined three others to discuss the risks of serving in the U.S. military, and how employers can support those seeking work.

U.S. Navy Capt. Barton Buechner participated in WakeUP! – a November Chamber of Commerce event covered by the Michigan-based publication, Midland Daily News.

Buechner graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1978 and served aboard the destroyer USS Forest Sherman during the Iranian hostage crisis. He retired from active duty in 2008 and — in addition to his Adler University Online Campus work — currently serves on the National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.

"Employers don't know how to find vets. So, one of the ways we can help in the community is to put out the welcome mat," he said, in a Midland Daily News article summarizing the panel discussion.
