October 2020 ‘Out of the Blue’ dives into MTSU-U.S. Army partnership, service to student-veterans

Middle Tennessee State University‘s “Out of the Blue” TV magazine show is diving into the university’s long partnership with the U.S. Army, its service to students and student-veterans and its high-flying adventures in the October 2020 edition.

This month we feature a military focus as we explore MTSU’s 70-year association with training future Army leaders, learn more about the services of the Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center, and skydive at Fort Knox, Kentucky, with the U.S. Army Golden Knights.

Join us to hear from:

• Lt. Col. Carrick McCarthy from MTSU’s Department of Military Science in the College of Basic and Applied Sciences, who explains the origins of the U.S. Army’s Reserve Officers Training Corps partnership with MTSU students and their continuing service to the country.

• Retired Army Lt. Gen. Keith Huber, senior adviser for veterans and leadership initiatives, who shows viewers the nation’s largest and most comprehensive veterans’ support center at an academic institution and the myriad ways its staff serves student-veterans and their families.

• Army Sgt. 1st Class Christopher “Ace” Acevedo, a member of the Golden Knights skydiving team, who perform around the world as part of the branch’s strategic outreach program.

The show also is closed-captioned for viewers with hearing impairments.
