RI Veteran Transitions From Military To Student Life At URI
On this Veterans Day we meet Donald Ruggieri. He served five years in the Marine Corps, and was deployed to Iraq as an explosives dog handler.
He continued that work state-side, working with the secret service on missions for both President Bush and President Obama.
Ruggieri is not only a veteran, but also a student at URI where he is studying to become a veterinarian.
Ruggieri spoke with Rhode Island Public Radio’s education reporter Elisabeth Harrison.
