Soldier http://wfae.org en Student Veterans And The GI Bill http://wfae.org/post/student-veterans-and-gi-bill <p>The GI Bill was created to give soldiers a way to go to college cost-free after they finished their service. But a cost-cutting change to the benefit may mean a big tuition bill for some vets. It now only covers in-state tuition, a problem for some returning soldiers who spent years bouncing from base to deployment without establishing residency anywhere. Some North Carolina veterans say the UNC system makes it even harder for them to qualify and now they’re suing.

Thousands of soldiers are coming home with missing limbs, other severe injuries and PTSD. There are resources in place to help them but the challenges are great. Two decorated war heroes are in Charlotte this weekend to bring more awareness to the issues soldiers face here at home. We’ll also meet the head of an organization helping to ease their return to civilian life and as well as an expert helping soldiers become whole again. We’ll discuss the battle after the war when Charlotte Talks. Fri, 02 Nov 2012 04:00:00 +0000 14935 at http://wfae.org Wounded Warriors And Life After War
