Lauran Glover was born in Westerville, Ohio, and raised in Columbus. She attended the University of Findlay where she earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology. While attending college, she considered joining the military. Her parents instilled a culture of service. Her mother served in the Air Force for 28 years, and her father was a firefighter.

After graduating in 2011, Glover enlisted in the Army and traveled to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, to complete basic training. She commissioned through officer candidate school and then went to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, for military police training.

In the fall of 2012, Glover went to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to work in the detention facility. Glover accepted the challenge of working with detainees who were awaiting trial for crimes against the U.S. by treating them with dignity and respect. She made an effort to learn about their backgrounds and motivated her soldiers in order to keep them in the proper headspace.

After finishing her service at Guantanamo Bay in October 2013, Glover sought a new challenge and experience. She reached out to her branch manager and joined the Old Guard in Fort Myer, Virginia. Glover was the platoon leader of the 289th Military Police Company of the Old Guard. Glover led soldiers in their dual purpose of serving in ceremonies and protecting high level officials during ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery.

Following her year with the Military Police Company, Glover joined the U.S. Army Drill Team. She became the first woman to lead the Drill Team.

Despite facing several detractors who doubted her ability as a woman in a traditional male role, Glover led her platoon by her central mission of teamwork, while keeping in mind the platoon’s “pursuit of perfection” motto. She proved herself as a successful drill commander, commanding her platoon at a Cleveland Cavaliers football game and a Columbus Crew soccer game, the first time a drill team performed with a major soccer league team.

Glover ended her military career in 2016 as a captain of the Drill Team. She then started a clinical psychology doctoral program at the American School of Professional Psychology and later transferred to the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Her goal is to work as a psychologist for military personnel.

Cal Stammer, Region 7 Veterans Outreach and Recovery Program (#VORP) coordinator and a veteran himself, recently helped a Winnebago County #Navy veteran receive medical care and residential treatment.

After living for more than three decades with symptoms of anxiety, depression, and #PTSD, the veteran struggled with strained family relationships, legal trouble, employment difficulties, and medical complications.

After working with Cal and VORP, the veteran is now living at one of WDVA's Veteran Housing and Recovery Program sites and has made significant positive progress including submitting an Intent to File for Service Connected Disability, maintaining sobriety for over 120 days, gaining full-time employment, engaging with providers whom he trusts at his local community based outpatient clinic, rebuilding relationships, and looking to the future.

This is just one of many success stories to share this month from VORP, which connects veterans to community services and provides case management and support, with a special focus on treatment and recovery.

If you know of a Wisconsin veteran in need, please call us at 1-800-WIS-VETS.

When we think about the front lines of the fight against #COVID-19, we often think of doctors, nurses, and nursing assistants. These incredible, dedicated healthcare workers have saved countless lives throughout the pandemic.

But there's also another group working tirelessly, often behind the scenes, to keep us well -- custodial and housekeeping staff. On this National #CustodianDay, we express our gratitude to the custodians and housekeeping staff working at our veterans homes, central office, benefits resource center and more. Thank you for the work you do to keep us safe!

A World War II veteran and his wife posthumously left a $1.2 million gift for Gateway Technical College - its largest contribution to date.

Veteran Otto Tarnowski and his wife, Beverly, are the namesake of a building on campus, and the most-recent gift from their estate will help with the school's student emergency fund, manufacturing program support and more.

The Tarnowskis are buried next to each other at our Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Union Grove. #WisVets
