Veterans and the military: Serving those who have served
Members of the active duty military and veterans of our armed services deserve respect and support.
Virginia’s Community Colleges are dedicated to providing those who serve with the opportunity to access the resources and training they need to succeed at home.
Veterans’ affairs offices at each community college are an important resource for veterans, active duty military and their families (see list, right).
Organizations such as GI Jobs and Military Advanced Education (MAE), which provide annual rankings for the most military-friendly colleges, increasingly give Virginia’s Community Colleges a thumbs up.
