Access to Educational Opportunities
As higher education costs rise, there is a widening gap in the GI Bill.
Programs to integrate returning soldiers into campus life are often fragmented and diffused and allow too many veterans to fall through the cracks. This dynamic most impacts those with PTS and other psychological issues for whom treatment is available, but often not identified in a timely way.
Turmoil within the for-profit education space has a particularly heavy impact on veterans since GI Bill funds lost when these institutions close can mean a loss of housing benefits as well.
Soldier Strong Access works for policy change in order to close these gaps, so our veterans can acquire the skills they need to thrive as private citizens.
