TROY -- Sean Sutton deployed to Afghanistan twice. If you told the Marine from Colonie then that he'd be making flash cards now in preparation for a Biotechnology test, he probably would have laughed.
"Now I'm a full time student, and I'm probably in this room 90% of my day," explains Sutton
The room to which Sutton is referring is HVCC's Armed Forces Study area. Today it was recognized by the New York State Industries for the Disables and is now an official "Battle Buddy Center." The name is borrowed from a military technique that partners service men and women with each other both in and out of combat.
