Raleigh, NC, December 18, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Major General Leo V. Williams III (USMC, RET), recently shared his thoughts on the value of higher education for active duty, reserve duty, and veterans, in an article titled Attaining Your Goals Through Education. Williams believes educational benefits offered to military service members provide an exceptional opportunity for career advancement, especially for minorities; currently less than 10% of minority enlisted personnel have a bachelor’s degree.
“Education options have evolved with technology, and many of today’s online programs allow you to continue your education regardless of where you are stationed,” says Williams. “This flexibility permits learners to find a school that adapts to their learning style, choosing the accredited school they would like to attend. The education benefits offered by all branches of the armed services provide opportunity. It’s an invitation to improve your life, to improve your family’s life.” Read the full article at https://militarylearnersnow.com/attaining-your-goals-through-education/.
