Recently retired military member, Anthony Hodge, who has now been accepted into Vanguard University, will speak at this veterans event on Thursday, April 4 at 7:30 p.m. Years of marine core service and multiple deployments to support Operation Iraqi Freedom have shaped Hodge’s life. He will speak about his childhood, military service and how he became a Christian in the past few years.
Hodge’s message will focus on the “integration of military service and faith,” Rory Self, student chaplain of the Veterans Club, said. Currently, Hodge works for a nonprofit organization called The Mission Continues, which aims to get veterans involved and serving in their communities.
Speaking on the chapel’s purpose, Self said: “It’s to highlight and honor the veterans on campus.” Alongside Self, fellow Vanguard Veterans Club leaders, Christopher Kupitz and Adrian Michaels, have worked to make this chapel a blessing for all who attend, especially the service men and women.
Self also wanted to encourage any military attendees to come dressed in their uniforms. It will be an evening to enjoy refreshments, relish good company and honor service men and women.
