With a new year getting into swing, it’s a great time to take stock of your academic and professional goals and make plans for making them reality.

What a wonderful way to kick off the new year.

We regularly receive emails and information from the US Veteran’s Affairs Office. We felt that this letter penned by Curtis L. Coy, Deputy Under Secretary for Economic Opportunity, Veterans Benefits Administration, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, DC, was particularly poignant and appropriate for our Martin Luther King holiday.
