As a teacher who works with those serving in the armed forces I have become aware of institutions which prey on those who have fought in order to make money. Some institutions make wild promises about how easy it is to get a degree and once that is possessed it is very easy to secure a job. They lie. In addition, members of the armed forces have difficulty handling the confusing patchwork of student loan benefits. Unfortunately, this confusion results in taking on loans that never should have been secured.
Almost daily there are reports of veterans and members of the military being bilked by college loan sharks. Students are urged to take large loans and when reality sets in with no high paying job they are left heavily in debt. Veterans and members of the military should speak to someone who provides assistance prior to assuming any loan!
