GI Bill

Michael Mroziak, WBFO

College students have settled in for the fall semester and among them are many who first served in the U.S. military. When veterans enter college, they bring a unique perspective while also facing unique challenges. Most Western New York colleges and universities either have some form of veterans office, student veteran organization or provide links to services. WBFO visited one local college to learn more about veterans on campus.

The time limit on veterans' education benefits would be eliminated under a bill proposed by Rep. Brian Higgins, who says veterans who put their lives on the line should have flexibility when seeking an education.
