In addition, Military.com helps members of the community take full advantage of their educational benefits. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, half of all service members eligible for the GI Bill do not use the benefits they earned through their active duty service. Military.com and its subsidiary, GIBillExpress.com, help members understand their eligibility, find scholarships and objectively evaluate colleges. GIBillExpress.com offers exclusive rankings of colleges based upon incentives provided for veterans and policies on accepting prior military training for credit.
"Leaving active duty for a civilian career or additional education puts people in unfamiliar territory," said Military.com CEO Christopher Michel. "Military.com assists members of this community in exploring their options and making informed choices. We help people find civilian careers, connect with career experts and get the most out of their educational benefits."
