Students Visit Connecticut State Veterans Home

A group of Wesleyan students, led by University Protestant Chaplain Tracy Mehr-Muska, visited the Connecticut State Veterans Home in Rocky Hill on Nov. 8, just ahead of Veterans Day. The twelve students—including two Posse Veteran Scholars—visited with the veterans, sang patriotic songs, and pinned American flag pins on their lapels in honor of their military service. They were joined by Mehr-Muska's chaplain intern from Yale Divinity School, Jonathan Heinly, and the chaplain at the Veterans Home. Among the veterans they met was a 101-year-old man who served as a member of the Tuskegee Airmen.
