Timothy McMahon: Veterans’ GI Bill choices should not be limited – Trib Live

After four years of serving our country in the Air Force, I began a career as an educator in Pennsylvania. For 4½ decades, I have worked with students and employers all across Pennsylvania to give students in-demand skills and give employers career-ready graduates.

At Triangle Tech, we have had the privilege of educating thousands of former service members. Recently, we have been discussing with our student veterans and alumni veterans why they chose to attend our career schools versus some other type of school in the community, and asked them what they think about proposals in Congress to limit access for veterans.

Some are surprised to learn that there are a number of proposals that, if enacted, would dictate to veterans where their earned GI Bill education benefits could be used. This would severely limit their choices to pursue an education at a career school like Triangle Tech. The GI Bill benefits were promised to every veteran who signed up to protect America. Any limitation on the education benefits earned by veterans would be a disservice and a broken promise.
