- MLK Center Veterans Day Breakfast – Our family attended a Veterans Day Breakfast sponsored by the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity at the MLK Center and enjoyed a live performance from the children of Caring and Sharing Learning School. The children danced to “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson, recited a Veterans Day poem, entitled, “Veteran’s Day Was,” performed a liturgical dance to John Legend’s “Glory,” and sang “God Bless America.” Afterward, veterans were asked to share their memories from the Military, and gold star families were honored. We heard from sponsors and politicians who reminded attendees that “freedom isn’t free,” and we must salute our veterans because they are the ones who fight for our freedom every day.
- GI Bill – Since 1944, the GI Bill has helped qualifying Veterans and their family members get money to cover all or some of the costs for school or training. GI Bill benefits help you pay for college, graduate school, and training programs.
- ROTC Programs – The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is a college program offered at more than 1,700 colleges and universities across the United States that prepares young adults to become U.S. military officers. In exchange for a paid college education and a guaranteed post-college career, participants, or cadets, commit to serve in the Military after graduation. Each Service branch has its take on ROTC.
- Colleges in the United States – Did you know that American Universities are the best in the world? American higher education isn’t defined just by its leading institutions. It’s a vast enterprise with a diversity unmatched anywhere in the world. Only Canada, for example, has a system of community colleges that approximates what you find in the U.S. We boast some of the most elite and selective universities and open-admissions institutions catering to everyone. We have more top universities than any other nation. It’s no wonder the U.S. remains the most popular destination for international students.
