"My LeTourneau University education built upon the values of service instilled in me first by the military and taught me how to be a better leader."
Ken Howard, Ph.D
Captain, Defense Intelligence Agency
"As an instructor in the online program I am convinced it is the best way for the mature student to develop their career while they advance their education."
Dr. Janice Spangenburg
Navy from 1981-1986 as an E5 on Active Duty with the Navy and Honorably Discharged on 30 June 1986
"I am a navy vet and I believe that LETU programs would be flexible and fit the busy and often hectic lifestyles of the military who are deployed and in country. We have faculty who understands and cares in the Agape fashion of Christ."
Dr. Roger Holt
Rank: Tech Sgt
Branch: USAF 1970 - 1975
"I was never in a dangerous position while in the Air Force; I only flew a typewriter ;-) However, I have two nephews with tours of duty to IRAQ.
Neither were "strong" Christians when they left. Apparently, combat brings on a change of heart. Both returned wanting to know more about God. Additionally, both came to a realization that education is required to "be all you can be".
LeTourneau University online, fits the needs for anyone considering a military position, currently in the military, or having completed a career of service."
Dr. Fred Carlson
"I served over 22 years in the Air Force and retired as a Lt.Col.
The newer vets have $48,000 to spend on education and they can complete their education and work full time supporting their families without having to bear the cost of the education. That is how I got my doctorate - GI Bill at night at St. Louis U. Today’s military and veterans can now obtain an accredited, quality, and Christ-centered education at LeTourneau University using their expanded education benefits."
Denis P. Tocci, PhD
Captain, Armor, 1980
Senior Instructor, LeTourneau University
"Like my most military officers, I valued continuing education. Today we would say I am a life-long learner. In 1978, while stationed at Ft. Knox, Kentucky I chose to earn a Master's Degree in Systems Management. My only other option was a Master's in Public Administration. Education was limited since Instructor's had to visit the post and classes were taught on specific days at specific times. Had the internet been available with its anytime, anywhere, any pace convenience, I would have chosen to earn a Master's in Business Administration. It was not until 1999 when online education was becoming accepted that I was able to purse my doctoral degree in a hybrid format that required few on campus courses. Online education has been a great blessing and has changed my life and future."

"The short semesters offered by Letourneau online are ideal for military members while at home-station or deployed, even during times of high-ops tempos."
Dr. Francis Smith, Faculty
Army 3/82nd Airborne, 1967-1969
"Le Tourneau University is a good choice. It is a university with an eternal perspective. It is a community of people who are committed to a life which unashamedly honors Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Nondenominational, yet distinctly Christian, the university is founded exclusively on Biblical principles. Letourneau University is the school where veterans will find purposeful instruction, whether from an online course or in the classroom. Le Tourneau University is the school where veterans want to be and where veterans want their children to be."
