I am retired Navy (22yrs), Vietnam Vet, and in my Military experience was a asset. Looks like that has changed.
"Turning soldiers into scholars by turning military experience into college credit" PBS NewsHour 10/23/2018
SUMMARY: Despite years leading troops and managing equipment on the front lines, soldiers returning to school may have to start from the beginning, alongside teenagers who have never held a similar level of responsibility. Now, a new Colorado law awards college credit for military experience--and requires that the state's schools accept it. Hari Sreenivasan reports.
Hari Sreenivasan (NewsHour): This year, Colorado legislators embraced Pikes Peak's model by passing legislation to help all Colorado military and veteran students.
Colorado's new law says any state-funded institution has to be able to evaluate the knowledge or skills that a student might have picked up in the military. And if that student can earn credit for it, those credits have to be transferable to every state institution.
