Dozens of military and veteran service organizations are pushing back against the Department of Education’s decision earlier this year to suspend enforcement of Obama-era rules aimed largely at for-profit colleges and universities.

Service members, veterans and their families are particularly vulnerable to “unscrupulous colleges,” they said.
