Oscar Colindres, 38, is a student veteran at USC. Colindres says goodbye to his 15-year-old son, Israel, and 3-year-old daughter, Madalynn, before leaving for class on Monday, April 1. Colindres spent more than 15 years in the Marine Corps, including a tour in Iraq as part of Operation Desert Shield in the early 1990's. Maya Sugarman/KPCC
