I'm a disabled U.S. Navy veteran. I served for 8 years. Now I am trying to get a full time job to help support my family, but I found out that even though the dependents of disabled veterans can get tuition assistance, disabled veterans like me don't qualify.
Thousands of veterans are in the same situation as me: we need to go back to school to get a job, but we can't afford to. It's unfair that only veterans who enlisted after 2001 can return home to have their education fully paid for. Thousands of brave men and women made the same risks before 2001 and deserve the same benefits.
All veterans deserve access to education, no matter when they sacrificed their physical, emotional or mental health for their country. Please sign this petition to ask for education benefits for all veterans and current soldiers.
