We like to bring important information to the military community and one of the most critical items I can think of in anticipation of Veterans Day on November 11th is your new educational benefits. Like a NASCAR racer you must keep your educational engine tuned for max performance! What an opportunity to grow your expertise and job skills while in the service or post service! Please take advantage of them as many before you have done. They are clearly better now and offer many variables and cover the cost of tuition, books and a monthly stipend is available too!
We have a great article on the New GI Bill on MilitaryAvenue and you should read it to learn more about what your benefits are. Did you know there is a way for many veterans to transfer the benefit to a family member? What a great improvement for a military family with educational costs climbing faster than inflation. Your education is critical to your future and will be something that helps keep you tuned up for the challenges of the future.
Today also starts the addition of Central Michigan University as a base sponsor on MilitaryAvenue and their educational programs fit well with the GI Bill and they can be found at numerous installations and online as well. They can answer questions about the GI Bill too. The education offices at your installation are another great resource for information as well!
As you make that quick pit stop for your education benefits think how many laps you can cover to reach those goals and life experiences with a new degree. The checkered flag is just waiting for you to run past. Don’t delay; get on the gas today!
