GI Bill

Students can utilize the various Chapters of the GI Bill® to pay for tuition. Whether or not a student will have out-of-pocket costs depends on which chapter of the GI Bill® is authorized. Some chapters pay the education benefit directly to the veteran, while others pay the education benefit directly to the school. More detailed questions should be directed to the VA for the most accurate answers concerning specific benefits.

I don't know that there is a more significant role that was played in my mental health rather than Brandman*. With recent studies and reports of veteran suicide rates on the rise, giving us relationships with other with similar backgrounds and giving us a purpose and belonging, will go a long way in reducing this number.

As a veteran, I definitely encourage other veterans to seek out what services the school offers. And even if you don't think you can qualify for the advantage, at least ask. It's not accepting a handout. It's encouraging other members in the military to take part in the program.
