John D. "Duke" Hopper
A Richmond native and veteran of the U.S. Army Special Forces, Duke Hopper is now pursuing a bachelor's degree in Philosophy at Columbia University with the goal of attending law school after graduating. During his time in the Green Berets, Duke deployed to Columbia and Honduras as a part of the ongoing counter- narcotics effort in Central and South America as well as Afghanistan as a member of the NATO Resolute Support Mission. As an intern, Duke hopes to contribute to providing fellow veterans with the best support possible while they see their claims through. An avid golfer, Duke particularly enjoys playing in veterans charity tournaments, though not very well.
