Boots to Books

May 12th, 2009 by flanews

Floridas Veterans will soon receive money for college through the new GI Bill.

To help veterans make the transition from combat to college the state is launching its Boots to Books website. The site will help veterans apply for their GI Benefits and show them how to apply to state universities and community colleges. Executive Director of the Florida Department of Veteran Affairs Admiral LeRoy Collins said Florida is ahead the pack in its efforts to help soldiers cash in their college benefits.

The Post 9/11 GI Bill is the largest and most comprehensive package of education benefits since World War II and once again Florida is taking the lead with this Boots to Books Initiative, said Collins.

The GI Bill goes into effect August 1st, but veterans can begin searching the site now. The web address is www.flbootstobooks.org
