I was in the Navy and was able to use the state GI bill for job training at MATC. I just graduated from the welding program and will start metal fabrication classes this fall. I can’t wait to learn more. I found that if you show initiative, your instructors will bend over backwards to help you. I hope other vets out there will use their veteran benefits to the fullest.
The Student Veterans Lounge is one of many great resources. There’s a brotherhood and sisterhood that bonds you to other vets. Staff at Madison College will guide you toward veteran services to help you and your family. They really care about your experience as a veteran here.
