An upcoming webinar hosted by the Association of the U.S. Army will feature author John Davis, a combat veteran with tips on how to transition from the military to college.

Davis, who was an infantry squad leader in the 101st Airborne Division, wrote Combat to College: Applying the Military Mentality as a Student Veteran. During the webinar Sept. 7, part of AUSA’s Noon Report series, Davis will discuss the book and share advice with fellow veterans who may be struggling as they start their college careers.

The event at noon Eastern is free, but registration is required here.

A combat veteran, author and Harvard University graduate, Davis has spoken to Congress as a legislative fellow for the VFW and Student Veterans of America. He developed a coaching program for Student Veterans and is an AUSA Book Program author.

His book, Combat to College, seeks to guide student veterans as they transition to college and use their GI Bill benefits. In 10 straightforward lessons, designed for veterans by a veteran, readers will learn how to navigate the transition to civilian life, build their team and resume, work with political professors and endure to graduation, according to a description of the book. The book also will help readers use the unique skills and discipline they gained in the military to succeed in higher education, while maintaining their military bearing and unwavering determination in their next chapter.
