Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 26, 2014
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation, a nonprofit veterans service organization that provides critically needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded—physically or psychologically—after defending our safety and our freedom, announces that it has launched its most recent guest blog on veterans’ education.
In collaboration with Student Veterans of America (SVA), DVNF has a new guest blog shown on its website. The blog post discusses the current state of veterans’ education, and utilization of the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill.
Written by SVA’s President and CEO, D. Wayne Robinson, the article highlights various facts, including that of the nearly 3 million post-9/11 veterans, roughly a third have taken advantage, or are expected to take advantage of their education benefits. It also discusses the importance of how veteran-supportive campuses can be critical to a veteran’s success.
The article also talks about new legislation that was recently enacted, called the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014. This legislation allows student veterans to pick any public institution nationwide, as long as they take advantage of their benefits, enrolling within 3 years of separation.
“I greatly appreciate SVA’s willingness to pass along such great information to veterans looking to go to college,” said DVNF CEO, Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.). “I encourage all veterans to look at this article and recognize the tremendous opportunities available to them, as well as the ever-expanding efforts to accommodate them when they leave the military.”
The guest blog was the second of the organization’s new series, which will continue in the month of October. The next theme for the blog series is, “Innovation in Combating Disabilitiy.”
