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.
