Celebrating Dragon Veterans 2021 – Amy Leupp
At MSUM, we value the dedication, responsibility and leadership veterans bring to our university, both as students and as employees. We proudly honor all veterans who have served our country and recognize a few of our Dragon veterans for their commitment to serve and protect.
Amy Leupp, Psychology major and Art Therapy minor
Amy Leupp served four years in the U.S. Air Force stationed in a Combat Comm unit, which required staying under 24-hour deployment notice.
While she faced many challenges during her service and experiences PTSD, it did open new doors for her. “I am a 100 percent disabled veteran. With that comes the opportunity for college, and I love being a Dragon,” she said. Amy would eventually like to obtain a master’s degree in art therapy and establish a program in the VA nationwide that will assist veterans who have experienced trauma.
