In the United States of America every man, woman, and child is entitled to an education, and they are given numerous freedoms that citizens of other countries can only dream of. However in the United States, it is not mandatory for every able citizen to serve in the Armed Forces, not even during a time of war. Nevertheless, there are still brave men and woman who made a decision to defend our freedoms while in foreign lands. These soliders and Marines put their lives at risk so Americans can have the chance to educate ourselves without the fear of being attacked from another country. But when these defenders come home from battle, after serving their country we still ask them to hand over exorbitant sums money for state schooling in the same nation they defended with their lives. This petition is a starting point to open this nations eyes to this error in judgment and secure for our heroic veterans complete funding for education after service. It\'s one of the first ways we as a nation can say \"thanks\" to our newest generation of protectors. Please show your support of our troops and their sacrifices they have made while defending what we all love and hold true to our hearts by signing this petition.
Veteran U.S.M.C.; three tours of duties in Iraq with 2/6 weapons company. Currently a freshman at Kent State University.
