Soldier Shares Life Experiences, From Combat to College

Article by: Janet Paulson

Sergeant Eddie “Coyote” Black’s career has covered a lot of ground: U.S. Marine Corps avionics technician, bartender, volunteer firefighter, infantry team leader in Iraq, combat arms instructor, and a college student studying psychology.

How did he make the transition from combat to college? Find out during a presentation at Clackamas Community College. Sergeant Black is a guest speaker at CCC on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 3 p.m. in the McLoughlin Auditorium. His presentation is coordinated by the Veterans Education and Training Center at CCC.

Black is a former Marine and current Oregon National Guard infantry soldier with multiple combat tours in Iraq. He will share his life experiences, from combat in Iraq to the college classroom, and how the pursuit of higher education is not only attainable, but therapeutic for the combat veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  Black’s presentation is followed by a question and answer session.

Black’s presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Greg Myers, CCC veterans services coordinator, at 503-594-3442 or gregm@clackamas.edu.
