2.1. Introduction and Objectives
Veterans of all ages are choosing education as a path to employment. Some decide on education for additional training or certifications needed for a specific career field, others because they want to do something totally different than what they had trained for while in the military or because of the employment outlook in today's economy. Whatever the reason, colleges and universities are becoming better acclimated with the needs of student veterans. Many are stepping up to the plate to create veterans programs where they didn't exist before, or are providing additional services based on the needs of their current veteran and military family population. This section will explore different strategies for helping you to make an informed decision regarding the post-secondary education that is right for you.
