military veterans

Currently, caregivers of those who served on or after September 11, 2001 can receive a stipend. U.S. Senator Dick Durbin wants to allow veterans who served before then to have the same eligibility. 

"I don't want to, in any way, denigrate the nursing homes and other care facilities, even our state nursing facilities of veteran's homes. But where they can, and when they want to, we want those veterans to have a chance to stay at home. It saves us money," Durbin said. An injured veteran staying at home is much less costly than if they are in a nursing home.

We observe Veterans Day with stories. Stories straight from the mouths of military veterans. 

Concerns are still being raised about the marketing practices of for-profit colleges when it comes to recruiting military veterans. The topic came up during a recent event highlighting outreach efforts at NIU.
