10.29.2021 Prevent Damage to Your Roofs: Regular Cleanup is Necessary
*This article follows the story of a US Navy Veteran in the Brandermill Community. The interview has been conducted anonymously. *
Rewind back to June of 1969. A senior student of the University of Minnesota is nearing the end of his studies in Occupational Therapy. He was a well-studied student, ready to start his career. The director of his program recognized this and informed the young man of an opportunity that would very well set his future up for success. The US Navy was in search of Occupational Therapists, and they were offering a full commission to those who joined. The young man, no older than 21, accepted the position and began his career in the US Navy Reserves. He was then sworn in as an Ensign (a commissioned officer) and obtained his commission. He completed his fieldwork at the Veteran’s Administration of Minneapolis, where he took the national assessment and upon passing, graduated from the program.
