“We are pleased to be recognized as the campus community continues to build on MSU’s tradition of providing the help veterans and their families need to transition from soldier to student and ultimately to college graduate,” said David Litteral, MSU’s director of military initiatives. “Almost seven years ago, MSU opened the Lt. Col. Alan R. Baldwin Veterans Center, which assists prospective and current military and student veterans by providing counseling and direction on all educational benefits, enrollment and registration assistance, counseling resources and referrals, academic and career assistance, and provides a place for student veterans to study or relax and reconnect with their fellow student veterans.”

MSU’s Veterans Resource Center was named in honor of Lt. Col. Alan R. Baldwin. A former assistant to the provost, Baldwin joined MSU in 1978 as an assistant professor of military science. After leaving briefly, he returned in 1985 and was named chair of the Department of Military Science. During his tenure, he held numerous titles. He also served on the Morehead City Council for 13 years.

Veterans, National Guardsmen and Reservists, and military families interested in learning more about MSU can get additional information by calling Litteral at 606-783-9267 or by emailing He can connect military and veteran students with the services made available for them across campus.

Other ways MSU assists our military and veteran students include:

  • Application fee waived.
  • Priority registration.
  • Credit for military training and service.
  • No academic penalty upon documented deployment.
  • Participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
  • Student Veteran Association.

MSU also has been previously recognized as a military/veteran-friendly university by GI Jobs magazine, Military Advanced Education journal, the Military Times, the U.S. News and World Report and Veterans National Honor Society.

U.S. Veterans Magazine (USVM) polled hundreds of Fortune 1,000 companies for the Best of the Best evaluations. At USVM, our goal is to open up employment, business and supplier opportunities within the federal government and corporate America for veterans, transitioning service members, disabled veterans, spouses and veteran business owners. The annual review is an evaluation of the nation’s employers, initiatives, government agencies and educational institutions. These non-biased studies are valuable resources for job-seekers, business owners, students, consumers, senior management, business associations, employment agencies and consumer groups

The mission of the U.S. Veterans Magazine (USVM) is simple: open up immediate, lucrative employment, business and supplier opportunities for veterans, transitioning service members, disabled veterans and veteran business owners within the federal government and corporate America. In turn, we link companies and government entities to qualified career and business candidates from the ranks of the nation’s veterans.
