Great College Choices for Returning Servicemen and Women
On July 8, the city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire will host a special “Welcome Home” parade to thank returning American servicemen and women for their service in Iraq. And from coast to coast, hundreds of organizations are kicking off special projects to make sure that our returning service people and veterans get all the support they need, as well as a heartfelt welcome. It’s happening in Rockland County, New York, Brownsburg, Indiana, Houston, Texas, and many other locales.
A number of American colleges are joining in too, doing all they can to help veterans return to college after they arrive home. Many of these schools have special counselors who are fully up-to-date on sources of government funding that can help veterans and service people pay for college. Many offer online learning options to help veterans start college while they are still deployed.
If you are a returning soldier or veteran and an educational option like that sounds good to you, here are some military-friendly colleges to consider . . .
