08 Dec: Madden Bill Would Establish ‘Troops To College’ Program

TRENTON – A measure sponsored by Senator Fred H. Madden, which would assist veterans in making the transition from the armed services into college was unanimously approved today by the Senate Education Committee.

“This goal of this program is to provide information and resources to help make veterans aware of the programs and benefits available to them in their efforts to further their education,” said Senator Madden, D-Camden and Gloucester. “For many of our men and women in uniform, it’s been quite a few years since they graduated from high school, and this program would help educate them about financial aid, campus veterans’ assistance, and other resources designed to help our vets earn their degrees.”
