Penn Law Veterans Alumni Association Aims to Provide Civilian Foxhole for Veterans

Denny Shupe is featured in an article from the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School, “Penn Law Veterans Alumni Association aims to provide civilian foxhole for veterans.”

“The Penn Law Veterans Alumni Association (PLVAA) will provide a touchpoint for law students who are veterans as well as their loved ones. As a pilot in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, Denny Shupe L’89 studied whenever and wherever he could. He cracked casebooks on cargo planes, on the base, and at home between overseas transport missions. Shupe, who had a decidedly different law school experience than most of his classmates, retired in 1999 as a lieutenant colonel after 23 years of service. He has spent the years since working with veterans, including those at the Law School, to ease their transition to civilian life. Now he’s using his hard-won experience to spearhead a new affinity group called the Penn Law Veterans Alumni Association (PLVAA), which he envisions as a platform for networking and solidarity at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School.”
