    Ellen Moore is a terrific speaker, but I found the text a little underwhelming I wish she had better connected the ethnographic work into broader research and, perhaps, into the history of veteran education from what I might guess was a heyday post WWII to a nadir post Vietnam The ethnography was rich, but at times disjointed.
