Female veterans embrace close-knit community at Kent State

Cat Hofer, president of the KSU Veterans Club, serves drinks to fellow members during the club’s weekly business meeting on Tuesday, September 4 at the Kent VFW. Hofer takes online classes at Kent State, and has been president of the club for one year. Hofer will soon be handing the position to another member in order to train for her April deployment to Afghanistan. Hofer, being one of several women present at the meeting, joked that the KSU Vets is a “men’s club,” before expressing great appreciation and love for her association with the club.
