Does your university seek out vets to help?

Arizona State University, to name one, provides immediate mentoring and navigation help to veterans. They also get in-state tuition.

Most of this comes through the Pat Tillman Veterans Center. This is due to a state law that went into effect on 2011--this in a state now known for its far-seeing, compassionate legislators.

One expert has said a lot of schools claim to be military-friendly--but this can be meaningless.

As soon as a vet tags up with a participating Arizona school, there is outreach. When they walk into the Tillman Center, for example, a vet will greet them.

Ask whether your local colleges have this sort of emphasis. Maybe you can get it started.
