[341] MTSU general tours Arizona State University’s Pat Tillman Center

Retired Lt. Gen. Keith Huber, Dr. Hilary Miller visit ASU
for ideas on service to veterans pursuing higher education

TEMPE, Arizona Lt. Gen. Keith Huber, the retired Army general now advising MTSU on ways to enhance its service to veterans, toured Arizona State University Thursday to tour its Pat Tillman Veterans Center.

The center was founded in 2011 in memory of Tillman, an ASU and Arizona Cardinals football star who gave up his pro football career to enlist in the Army after the 9/11 attacks. Tillman was killed while serving in Afghanistan. The Tillman center provides assistance and services to the roughly 4,000 veterans on ASU’s campuses.

Huber, along with Dr. Hilary Miller of MTSU’s veterans and military committee, was welcomed to ASU by his West Point classmate, retired Lt. Gen. Benjamin Freakley, who serves as that university’s special adviser to the president for leadership initiatives, and retired U.S. Navy Capt. and Tillman Center Director Steven Borden.
