Going straight from battlefields and barracks to a college classroom isn't always a smooth transition. For many veterans, it's been years since they set foot in a lecture hall, took a test or joined an extracurricular activity.

Enter the Warrior-Scholar Project, a national nonprofit veteran organization that uses a boot-camp strategy to help vets get adjusted to college life. For the second year, Texas A&M is hosting new student veterans in the WSP's summer program.

The Teagle Foundation has supported the Warrior-Scholar Project since 2015.
