It is often difficult for service members to locate information on, understand, and obtain the resources and benefits that they are entitled to. Many are also overwhelmed by a combination of emotional, financial, and cultural obstacles that hinder their college education. We are dedicated to ensure these veterans do not fall through the cracks or get left behind as they work toward a higher education and a better life.

Membership Criteria: Open to all interested in all things veteran.
