From Boots to Books: The Value of Education for Veterans


Joining the military is something many people pursue with all their heart to serve their country. This decision can have a significant impact on their lives. For example, one of the most important ways military service changes a person’s life is to change their professional career. Unlike civilians, military men and women may not graduate in the usual time frame. Once their jobs were completed, they may not have the education they need to resume their lives. If you are a veteran, education is necessary to find work and join the civilian workforce.

Fortunately, there are many resources available for veterans and active-duty military. These resources and opportunities can help veterans complete their studies. For example, they may qualify for tuition assistance that can cover a large portion of their fees. One of the most well-known options, the Montgomery GI Bill, provides significant benefits to active-duty military personnel and veterans.

With the many education benefits available to veterans, not only is it possible to return to work after your time in the military is over, but it can also be easier than you think. Check out the following infographic to learn more about the benefits you may receive.
