I write about everything that helps US veterans, the organizations that support them, and US small businesses. And I propose to my readers that they also become involved in our important cause. Towards that end, I also write about HirePatriots' exclusive Cause Marketing strategy to promote the businesses that support us. And I introduce ways that patriots and veterans can earn an income from home or office through HirePatriots.com. HirePatriots.com is a program of Patriotic Hearts 501c3. We encourage US residents to post Day Job for their local veterans. And we allow any business to post their jobs and search our resumes for free too.
Georgia Veterans, Are You Interested in Attending College?
The Post 9/11 GI Bill is the most lucrative education benefits package offered to our veterans since World War II. This GI Bill will enable our current veterans to become the “Next great generation,” says Dr. Larry Braue, Director of Veterans Services at the University of South Florida.
At HirePatriots Georgia, we know the importance of veterans wanting to enter into post-secondary education. The Post 9/11 GI Bill allows 100 percent of veteran’s tuition and fees; housing assistance; and a stipend for school supplies. There are also opportunities to transfer the benefits to immediate family members. The Bill supports veterans who served on or after September 11, 2001 or who at least had 30 nonstop days of active duty that were disconnected as a result of a service related disability.
Going back to college or starting for the first time may be overwhelming and we want you to have a smooth and worry-free transition.
