Sun Journal profiles war veteran Jared Golden '11
The Lewiston Sun Journal, under the headline “War veteran attending Bates has heart still in Afghanistan,” profiles Jared Golden ’11, a Marine veteran from nearby Leeds who served in Iraq and Afghanistan before coming to Bates. A history and politics major, Golden returned to Afghanistan last summer to teach school. He tells about seeing a young girl who, because she attends school, had battery acid thrown on her face. Golden believes that without more U.S. military help, “there’d be more kids like her.” View story from Sun-Journal, Nov. 9, 2009.
