Syracuse University issues Call to Artists for the Moral Injury Project – they are looking for artistic representations of the damage done to one’s conscience when they perpetrate, witness, or fail to prevent acts that transgress their own moral and ethical values (moral injury). See flyer below:

To better understand military servicemembers’ transition, researchers at the University of Oxford—and trusted collaborators of the IVMF—want to hear about your transition out of the military. Please take 5-10 minutes to answer the following survey. Your responses will be used to analyze the impact of veteran transition programs offered by the U.S. government. To thank you for your time, you will be entered in a raffle for the chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card upon completion.

All responses will remain confidential to ensure privacy. If you have any questions, please contact Connor Love at veterantransitionstudy2015@gmail.com.

This week’s IVMF Hometown Hero is Lieutenant Commander (LCDR) Rob Belk, currently a Military Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense & Global Security.

LCDR Belk graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1995. He received a Master’s in Public Policy from Harvard while serving as a Politico-Military Fellow from 2010 to 2012.

LCDR Belk’s career began in Naval Aviation. He is a Strike-Lead qualified naval aviator and he has accumulated over 2,500 military flight hours in tactical fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircrafts.

LCDR Belk’s career eventually shifted from tactical to strategic. This began in 2004, when he became the Navy liaison from Carrier Air Wing Two to Combined Task Force-536 to assist in the multi-national tsunami relief efforts. In 2008, LCDR Belk was deployed to Baghdad, Iraq. There, he led hundreds of Multi-National Force Review Committee detainee review boards, including those for many former high-ranking Ba’ath Party members. During that deployment, LCDR Belk was chosen to operate with the Marines in Ramadi to improve detainee reintegration processes in support of the overall counter-insurgency strategy.

Most recently, in 2014, LCDR Belk was handpicked to serve in the Office of the Secretary of Defense as a Special Assistant in Cyber Policy. LCDR Belk was then selected to his current position working for the Assistant Secretary of Defense.

In December 2015, Belk will retire after 20 years of service. He is deeply grateful for the opportunities that service has afforded him, and he looks forward to the new adventures ahead.

Below he is pictured in the remains of the Ba’ath Party Headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq —one of the first targets at the beginning of the 2003 Iraq War.

Meet the Staff of IVMF! Rosalinda Maury is the Director of Survey Research at the Institute for Veterans and Military Families.

Maury works on various research studies pertaining to veterans and military families, releases research briefs and employment reports on veterans, as well as evaluates our IVMF programs. 

“There is never a dull moment working at the IVMF. As our organization has grown, so have our capabilities, tasks and reach,” says Maury. 

Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Maury is no stranger to veterans in her heavily military-populated hometown. 

Maury has worked on many different research efforts pertaining to military servicemembers and their families. She has managed and provided research support for many different types of studies and projects that focus on factors impacting on-the-job performance, effects of personal financial mismanagement behaviors, job and occupational analysis, factors impacting military spouse and veteran employment, veteran job retention, and analysis of servicemembers’ experiences in higher education.

Although Syracuse has become Maury’s home for the past seven years, she still hasn't quite adjusted to the huge amount of snowfall, frozen hair and the concept of rust-proofing vehicles. She desperately misses Mexican food from her hometown and invites anyone to bring said food to her office day or night.  She hopes a Taco Cabana will open soon in Syracuse.  Those from San Antonio know what that is.
