Colleagues and Fellow Veterans and Servicemembers,
Like any military mission, transitioning to civilian life takes preparation, research, planning, and the right tools. One of the most powerful tools you have is the GI Bill®, and it's important to know how to use it.
That's why we are excited to introduce two unique tools to help you in your decision process.
We have recently updated our 'Choosing the Right School' Guide. This new version includes information about the different types of degrees/programs that you can use with the GI Bill, the importance of school accreditation, and much more valuable information to help you make the right decisions on where to use your hard earned benefits! You can check it out at: http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/docs/factsheets/choosing_a_school.pdf
As well we would like to introduce VA's "Know Before You Go" video, featuring Veterans who have used their GI Bill benefits and offer great advice for how you can make the most of yours.
You can use your benefits to obtain an associate, bachelor's, master's degree, or even a Ph.D. You can participate in a certification program to gain the credential required for the civilian job you want. You can learn a new trade through an apprenticeship or on-the-job training.
For some Veterans, having so many options can feel overwhelming. "Make sure you have a plan," says Kyle White, an Army Veteran and Medal of Honor Recipient who appears in the video. The GI Bill Comparison Tool is a great place to start. But perhaps the most powerful resource to help you make well-informed decisions about the future is your network of fellow Veterans.
We all need to make sure this generation of Veterans has every opportunity to succeed. We understand how important it is to prepare for life after the military, and we will continue working to provide you with the research and tools you need.
As always - please feel free to pass this on!
