My name is Angelo. This is my story. I served in the United States Marine Corps for 25 years. When I retired from the military, I was worried how my experience would translate to the civilian world. With the help of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, I was able to go back to school and earn a Masters of Science in Project Management from George Washington University. I qualified for the Yellow Ribbon Program, which meant that even at a private university my tuition was paid in full; I receive a housing allowance and also got money for books. The Post-9/11 GI Bill helped me achieve a competitive edge.
