Veterans at MSU

Dear Fellow Veterans and military family members:

It is a great privilege to welcome you to MSU or for those who are returning, welcome back! 2017 is going to be a great year for the Eagle Vets. The new branding for MSU is Morehead State University: Major in You! The motto couldn’t be more appropriate than it is for student-veterans. You have served your nation and her people. You have dedicated your time and efforts to others- now it is time to Major in You!

We have a great team of veteran-friendly staff and faculty that starts at the top. MSU President, Dr. Wayne Andrews is a Vietnam Veteran and there are numerous vice presidents and key leaders who are veterans. Nearly every department has veterans on the staff and faculty who know what it is like to place nation above self.

I am proud to represent you as the Director of Military Initiatives. My purpose is to recruit and retain student-veterans and help iron out any speed bumps along the way. I have two outstanding partners in helping student-veterans. Jill McBride is the Veteran Advocate and serves as your liaison for enrollment issues. She can be reached at: 606-783-5226 or by email at: Our other partner is Joey Bryant. He is an expert with VA and GI Bill related issues, and he is a fellow combat veteran. If you get an email from Joey - please answer it immediately as it will most likely involve your pay. Joey can be reached at 606-783-2878 or by email at

I am excited to meet and get to know each of you. Feel free to come by my office in Breckinridge Hall, Room 303E, across from the LTC Alan R. Baldwin Veterans Center. You can tell me how we’re doing, let me know how I can help you, or we can just sit and swap war-stories. Either way, please stop by. I can also be reached at 606-783-9267 (office) or 606-356-4239 (cell). You can also email me at

Congratulations on your commitment to further your education at Morehead State University. I hope you are as proud as I am to be an MSU Eagle Vet, Majoring in You! 2017 is going to be great!

Very respectfully,

David J. Litteral

Director of Military Initiatives
