In the eight years I served with the Oregon Army National Guard, I held various positions from your basic Infantry grunt to a Joint Fires Observer (JFO) squad leader supporting Infantry, Artillery, and Cavalry Scouts. I served one tour in Afghanistan from 2014-2015 in support of OEF & OFS. After that tour while in the Guard, I attended ITT Technical Institute in Portland. They were shut down in 2016 and I transitioned to Western to finish my degree in 2019. Like many Veterans, my academic journey was not linear, I am dedicated to making the transition to, success at, and graduation from WOU as welcoming and manageable as possible. If you are military affiliated in any way I would love to meet you and help you engage with our awesome community, please stop by the VRC located in the bottom floor of the WUC!

Hello, My Name, is Arthur David Anderson but everyone just calls me David. I joined the Marine Corps in 1991 at the age of 19 but suffered a back injury shortly thereafter. I had intended to follow in my grandfather’s example and retire from the military, he spent 26 years active-duty Army.  After some recovery and soul searching, I married my Wife of 25 years. Eventually, I found my way and earned a couple of degrees before settling down here at Western. It seemed like a good place to help those that want to make themselves better, or more educated at any rate. I have been working here for nine years now either as the Graduation Coordinator or Veterans Certifying Official and Compliance Coordinator.

Why should you contact David?

  • All questions regarding VA benefits
  • Questions regarding disbursement of VA payments, degree plans, etc
  • You need help filling out an academic petition for a Deployment or Unexpected Withdrawal
