When people ask Bruce Solheim for the location of the Citrus College Veterans Program office, he replies, "It's in my backpack." He's only half joking. Solheim, a professor of history at the Glendora, California-based college, serves as volunteer veterans coordinator. Over the past three years, he and other volunteers have built a program to serve the community's small but growing veteran population. The college offers an innovative introductory course, Boots to Books, that helps those who have served and their families readjust to civilian life and work. Veterans programs, such as the one at Citrus College and others like it across the country, eschew politics in favor of thanking veterans, welcoming them back, and giving them what they need to succeed whether they're pursuing two-year degrees, vocational training, a transition to a four-year college, or some other professional path.
