I've been a board member of this wonderful organization for the last 8 months. It has been sobering at times to read the amount of scholarship applications we get in the mail almost everyday. The need for financial help for military veterans, their spouses and children while in pursuit of college degrees is GREAT! As prior military myself and also a college student, I am fortunate to attend a college I can afford on my own without high loans. Examples of applications we recieve are many military veterans who go to school full time with 3.5 GPA's or higher that put 200% of themselves into college but their military benefits do not cover tuition, books, fees, their family's housing, food and daycare! We must invest in military veterans, who in many cases have sacrificed so much to serve as volunteers to defend our country. 100% of all funds we receive go straight to military veterans in the form of payments directly to their colleges and universities. We are an all volunteer Board of Directors and work very hard to support these veterans in any way we can in pursuing their higher education. Please help us support the next "Greatest Generation."
