We must support veterans and not politicize their education



Congressional hearings on the Hill continue to vilify for-profit universitiesand jeopardize how veteran students, like myself, can leverage our GI bill benefits, which is why I feel compelled to speak out.

It is time for our leaders to stand up for student veterans everywhere and respect their pursuit of education using their hard-earned benefits, no matter what type of college or educational institution they choose. I believe this not just because I am a student veteran, but because my career has been defined by serving both my country and my fellow servicemembers and veterans, and I know how important education is to these men and women.
