Vets and Education

May 27, 2014

The politicians are on a rant about the Veterans Administration. There’s certainly plenty to be concerned with, although those who are hollering the loudest are the same crew that limit funding for veterans and most everything else. That aside, while politicians do what they do, real people are making a difference. Here’s a piece by my friend Melissa Vito, Senior Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, and Vice Provost for Academic Initiative and Student Success at the University of Arizona:  After Vets Have Served, UA Reaches Out to Serve Them. Dr. Vito’s title says much about the U of A’s commitment to students, and the column reveals serious efforts to respect the service of veterans. If we’re impressed by the Greatest Generation, perhaps we need to acknowledge the fact that as a nation we helped them with the GI Bill and other supportive efforts when they returned.
