Congratulations to Sociology graduate Thomas Meyer on two new publications! While a Sociology undergrad, Thomas was awarded the Yale College Dean’s Research Fellowship to support his work, and on graduation in 2011 he headed to Cambridge for a year as a Fox International Fellow. His article on role-switching in the military and violence in state-building projects, “Flipping the Switch: Combat, State Building, and Junior Officers in Iraq and Afghanistan”, is now available in the journal Security Studies. He also authored a new guidebook on charitable giving for those who hope to make a difference for veterans and their families, Serving Those Who Served: A Wise Giver’s Guide to Assisting Veterans and Military Families. Thomas is currently at The Philanthropy Roundtable as manager of the veterans program, where he continues his work on military and veterans’ issues.
