By Mylasia Miklas, '20

Carlos Caro, president of the Student Veteran Association at Texas A&M University at Galveston, was recognized as a Student Veteran of the Year finalist at the 11th annual Student Veteran Association National Conference (Natcon).

Earning the title of Student Veteran of the Year is the organization's highest individual honor. Unfortunately Caro was not named Student Veteran of the Year. “It was just an honor to be next to these incredible student veteran leaders,” stated Caro, “just being up there and being recognized was a huge honor.”

Through his time as president of SVA it has been Caro’s mission to advocate for student veterans on campus. His biggest goal is to make TAMUG as military embracing as possible. He aims to make TAMUG a welcoming space for new student veterans. “There are a lot of moving pieces people do not know about,” explained Caro, “your whole culture is changing.”
