TEMPE, Arizona — Lt. Gen. Keith Huber, the retired Army general now advising MTSU on ways to enhance its service to veterans, visited Arizona State University March 12 with Dr. Hilary Miller of MTSU’s Veterans and Military Affairs Committee to tour ASU’s Pat Tillman Veterans Center.
The center was founded in 2011 in memory of Tillman, an ASU and Arizona Cardinals football star who gave up his pro football career to enlist in the Army after the 9/11 attacks. Tillman was killed while serving in Afghanistan.
The Tillman Center provides assistance and services to roughly 4,000 veterans on ASU’s campuses.
Huber’s West Point classmate, retired Lt. Gen. Benjamin Freakley, and retired U.S. Navy Capt. Steven Borden, director of the Tillman Center, welcomed Huber and Miller to ASU. Freakley serves as special adviser for leadership initiatives to ASU President Michael Crow.
Earlier this month on the MTSU campus, Huber hosted a series of “roll call” meetings in which student veterans and their families were invited to meet him at the Tom H. Jackson Building to provide feedback and discuss any concerns with him.
The three-star general, who retired as a lieutenant general in the U.S. Army after a 38-year career, wants to enhance services to the nearly 1,000 student veterans and family members on campus.
Huber can be reached by email at Keith.Huber@mtsu.edu and is available in Room 111 in the university’s Cope Administration Building.
