Haynie authors op-ed in HuffPost on anonymity facing post-9/11 vets and appears on WCNY to discuss the EBV


Mike Haynie, executive director of IVMF and Barnes Professor of Entrepreneurship in the Whitman School, authored an op-ed in The Huffington Post on how an apparent lack of empathy and understanding might spell the end of an all-volunteer military in this country. With more than half of Americans surveyed in a recent Pew Study reporting that 10 years of war has had no real impact on their daily lives, Haynie writes about how an experience on a recent business trip illustrated this disconnect in the American public with the servicemen and women who have voluntarily served our nation in the post-9/11 decade. Haynie also appeared on“Focus: Your Well Being" on WCNY to discuss the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities, along with Gerald R. Garritillo of Marcellus, N.Y., an EBV-Syracuse University 2008 graduate and U.S. Air Force veteran.
