"Colleges Aim to be Veteran-Friendly"

University of Missouri - Columbia (2 SEP 2007)
250 MU students receive military benefits, said Carol Fleisher, who leads the task force with Lee Henson. Henson said the group, which had its first meeting on Monday, is trying to find university models that might help make MU more "veteran-friendly." Task force member Gerald Caetano is president of the Mizzou Student Veterans Association. He said that despite the GI Bill and military tuition assistance, some MU students aren’t getting their needs met. "Every horror story you can think of has happened to at least one person," he said.
