Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

During this period, the United States engaged in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but unlike previous wars, there were not a lot of military veterans on campus. By 2007, there were 146 student veterans (only 0.7%) enrolled in classes at Fullerton College. One of those was Ethan Morse, Associated Student President. He had been a member of the Old Guard, the oldest infantry regiment in the U.S. Army, stationed in the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. The Veterans Affairs Office at FC continued to offer students the services they needed to succeed. Veteran students who were members or former members of the armed forces were granted priority registration for enrollment for any academic term. Although no Fullerton College students lost their lives in conflict during this period, three City of Fullerton residents did: Shane M. Stinson, 23, Cornell C. Chao, 36, and Shinwoo Kim, 23. The Veterans Club also worked diligently to send care packages to U.S. troops.
