American colleges are seeing a surge in the number of veterans enrolling. By some accounts, the numbers have doubled since the post-9/11 G.I. Bill came into effect.

Missouri Western State University and Northwest Missouri State University have both seen surges. Howard McCauley, dean of enrollment management at Western, said they’ve seen their biggest increase of veterans in the last two to three years. He said they work closely with Fort Leavenworth and other local units to make sure they have all the information regarding the benefits available to them through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
