A college education is a common denominator for many young people. In fact, more than 20 million students attended colleges and universities in the United States in the fall of 2017, constituting an increase of about 5.1 million since 2000. There is a stronger reliance on higher education than ever, so for many people exiting high school or the military, a college degree is an important next step.
But without adequate planning, higher education is often a major financial stretch for families. To ease the burden on our service people, our country offers a variety of helpful education benefits for military veterans.
