Warrior-Scholar Project Smooths Transition

Veterans at three college campuses just finished a weeklong academic boot camp. The programs in Michigan, Texas and Massachusetts were the last of more than a dozen that took place this summer.

At the Warrior Scholar Project, classes start at 8 a.m. on the campus of Amherst College for highly trained soldiers, sailors and Marines now hoping to become elite students. Their guide for the week is Joshua Buck, a former Army sniper and drill sergeant now drilling a different kind of lesson.
