Pets for Vets recognizes the difficulties that veterans can have adjusting to civilian life. We have compiled a Job Related Resources page to assist in this adjustment.

Military Connection
Providing information on government/federal jobs for Veterans, schools in which to further your education, Veteran benefits and more is what Military Connection does best. The brave men and women of the U.S. military, past and present, are who we serve, and as an online directory, we strive to be comprehensive and specific in the information we provide. This is the perfect place to learn more about military education and benefits provided to you through the GI Bill, and about employment opportunities that apply to your skill set and interests. We are here to provide help for Veterans in all aspects of their lives as a way to honor their service.

9/11 GI Bill
The Post-9/11 GI Bill is an education benefit program for individuals who served on active duty after September 10, 2001. You may be eligible if you served at least 90 aggregate days on active duty after September 10, 2001, or were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability after serving 30 continuous days following September 10, 2001.

Military Education Benefits and Programs Guide
If you’re an honorably discharged veteran or currently serving member of the military, you have many options for funding your higher education. Active-duty personnel and selected Reservists have access to programs like tuition assistance (TA). Veterans, depending on when they served, can take advantage of the Montgomery GI Bill, Post-9/11 GI Bill, Yellow Ribbon Program and other aid. There are excellent resources for military spouses and dependents as well.

The guide also has more than 150 resources with links to (and brief descriptions of) each.
