As we celebrate Independence Day this 4th of July, it’s important to remember the sacrifice that members of the armed forces make willingly in order to serve their country. The impact service can have on soldiers’ lives is far-reaching and takes numerous forms. One of the most significant ways military service can alter a person’s life, for example, is by changing the course of his or her career path. Unlike many civilians, service people may not complete their educations on the usual schedule. Once they finish their active duty, they may lack the formal schooling that would benefit their careers and resumption of their normal lives. If you’re a veteran, education is crucial for getting a job and re-entering the civilian world. With so many military education benefits available, it’s not only possible to jump back into the workforce after your time in the military ends, but it also can be easier than you may have believed possible. Visit the College Coach blog to view an infographic which lays out common benefits that may be available to you as a service member. We hope this guide helps you to explore your educational options, thank you for your service, and wish you a very happy Independence Day.
