August 27, 2019 – Cypress, CA – On August 1, Trident University International (Trident) Professor Paul H. Amundsen organized Veterans Appreciation Day at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, giving a group of eight wheelchair-bound veterans an opportunity to see a baseball game between the San Francisco Giants and Philadelphia Phillies.
This effort was organized in conjunction with Prof. Amundsen’s work with the Newark, Delaware Elks Lodge. He is a longtime Elks member and a strong supporter of veteran-outreach initiatives.
Prof. Amundsen, a former college pitcher and lifelong baseball fan, had the honor of throwing the ceremonial first pitch of the game.
“We had a wonderful experience at the ballpark with the veterans,” states Prof. Amundsen. “The hospitality of the Citizens Bank Park staff was second-to-none. Our vets deserve nothing less – all of them are heroes. My heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone involved in making this day a success.”
Prof. Amundsen, currently a professor in Trident’s University College, currently teaches Business Ethics and Business Law. He has practiced law for over 35 years, focusing on environmental law, health care law, and government regulation.
In 2013, he settled in the Mid-Atlantic area to become regulatory counsel for the largest petroleum refinery on the Eastern seaboard. In this role he handled all legal matters involving government agencies, most notably matters relating to the environment, health and worker safety, and corporate social responsibility.
