“The United States has some 100,000 troops in Afghanistan and plans to bring most forces home by the end of 2014.” And, “President Barack Obama announced this summer that 10,000 troops will be redeployed by the end of the year. The surge of 33,000 troops Obama sent will be out by the end of September 2012, leaving about 68,000 troops” (Williams, 2011).

Faculty may see Students as High Maintenance
“Access to supplemental instructional materials, the inability to respond in a timely manner, and difficulties with group work due to access issues all create instructional challenges. Faculty may see students as a high maintenance population” (Brown, 2011, para. 5).
In the strongest terms, Student Veterans of America condemns the practice of recruiting veterans and military Service members simply to receive their earned educational benefits.
