We discuss the two new programs Huts for Vets is taking on. The first is a partnership with Western State University in Gunnison, Colorado, which aims to help veterans enter college life by building relationships with other enrolled veterans. The second program is a women's hut trip, where the focus will be on issues women face overseas and when they come home.
