The REVU program is probably the only program that would have ever given veterans an experience like this. Other programs wanted experience in lab settings and as veterans we lack that. REVU has made transitioning from the military easier and guided me on the path. I felt like the military set me back four years from school. However, REVU gave me a head start to my dream career.
