The University of Idaho has done a good thing. It has launched Operation Education. Operation Education was launched on June 20, 2006 and was established US Military personnel who were severely or permanently disabled while serving our country since September 11, 2001 by providing an opportunity to earn a college degree. The program provides funding that is not offered by the Federal Government and scholarships for the disabled veterans to attend the University of Idaho. It also provides opportunities for their spouse to attend college also on a scholarship.
According to the Universities news release, "The university will provide wounded veterans with financial support and resources – such as tuition, fees and books, on-campus housing, transportation, medical assistance, child care, adaptive equipment, tutoring and mentorship – at its main campus in Moscow, Idaho, to assist veterans and their families as they re-enter civilian life. The university also has plans to partner with corporations around the country to offer internships and assist in job placement."
Nothing beats giving our military an opportunity after a life-changing event and to give them some thanks for the sacrifices that they have made.
If you know of a person who was injured and is interested in attending college, let them know about this program. If you feel it in your hear to donate, please do.
