GSA, Burgers and Vets
- By JP Cordero
Geography students shouted out food orders Wednesday, November 11th as we volunteered our services at a Veterans Day event which was held at the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Training Center for the National Guard. “Hot dog and hamburger combo!” could be heard clear across the base while Geography Student Association volunteers took on the heavy task of feeding thousands of hungry veterans and their families.
Smiles were plentiful as thanks were given to the men and women who served in the US armed forces. Hot grease attempted to burn through my plastic sanitation gloves as I stacked burger upon burger onto plates which were handed out for free to all veterans and any one who was hungry. The line for our tasty sensations was almost one-hundred meters long and snaked around the outdoor dining area filled with men and women decorated by metals and ribbons received in all wars fought from World War 1 up to Operation Iraqi Freedom.
At times it was unnerving to see the occasional M-16 assault rifle shouldered by some of the active members of the National Guard but once they were eating my worries dissipated. Working along side the men of The Elks Lodge in Garden Grove was a real treat in that we were consistently entertained by their anecdotes of time spent in our nation’s service and humored by their silly antics.
Dr. Unna Lassiter headed our mission to feed all our hungry veterans and she reminded us of the importance of recognizing such an important day. With the help of our beloved professor and the GSA our mission was a success! It came as no surprise when we were invited to come back for next year’s Veterans Day event to once again feed the Vets.

Firstly, our next meeting is this Thursday, October 29th at 5 PM in LA4 100.
Secondly, although we have a handful of folks committed to helping out, we are still looking for more volunteers for our Veterans' Day Event on November 11th, where we will carpool to the Base in Los Alamitos (Joint Forces Training Base 11206 Lexington Drive in Los Alamitos). We will be there early, between 9-10AM to set up and serve a BBQ lunch to the veterans! Please email us ASAP if you are interested!
Thirdly, the annual Geography Awareness Week is just around the corner (NOV. 9-12), and we are looking for volunteers to help out with the Photo Contest. The GSA will need volunteers for the following phases: A.) manning our table (taking shifts to oversee our t-shirts, promoting the club!!)B.) preparing the photos (includes categorizing the pics, slipping them into plastic protectors, and labeling)C.) setting up (includes bringing out/taking down the display boards, pinning up photos onto the display boards, etc.) ALSO, DON'T FORGET TO SUBMIT YOUR PHOTO BY NOVEMBER 3rd...the earlier the better!!
**confirm with your individual professors whether or not you could get EXTRA CREDIT for participating in the photo contest!**
That's it for now, I'm looking forward to seeing you all soon!! Please don't be afraid to email us with any questions, concerns, suggestions, etc.
Thanks for all of your support,

CSULB Geography Graduate Students will be presenting their work, you are encouraged to come support them and display the posters you have created as well, from your previous or upcoming classes.
CSU Fullerton students will also be in attendance and are more than happy to carpool and split hotel costs. The conference should be a fun-filled and educational experience.
This conference offers an excellent opportunity to network with other geographers within our region, and provides a unique educational experience with presentations on the various subdisciplines of geography.
Please email us with any questions, or if you're interested in going: firstname.lastname@example.org We will help you in getting what you need to attend! :)
