Finding ways to pay for college is the last thing on a veteran’s mind prior to, and during the heat of their studies. Most student veterans know the ins-and-outs of what the Post 9/11 GI Bill has to offer and virtually every student veteran, once at a university, puts their blinders on, their head in the books – or computer screens #2020 – and allows their GI Bill benefits to …
