In war wind-down, veterans' new mission is college
In this Sept. 14, 2013 photo provided by the University of Toledo U.S. Army veteran Clinton "Mick" Grantham, right, receives the Hero of the Game award from U.S. Navy Lt. Haraz Ghanbari, the university's military liaison during a college football game in Toledo, Ohio. When Grantham, 43, enrolled at Toledo after back and neck problems forced him out of the Army, he plowed through his savings waiting for his disability benefits to kick in. Ghanbari arranged for the local American Legion to provide Grantham with a $500 grant, and pointed him to a job opening with the university’s grounds crew. A veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, Grantham in social work with an emphasis on veterans. (AP Photo/Daniel Miller, University of Toledo)
