"American Sentinel University, an accredited distance learning university, is offering seven scholarships to U.S. military personnel who are severely injured, as well as their spouses. The program is offered in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Defense initiative DANTES: Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support. The scholarships will be awarded throughout the year, with the first deadline being May 15. Scholarships will cover 50 percent of a student’s tuition, books and materials for the chosen degree or certification program. The scholarship will be applied to the total program tuition."

"Scholarship forms are posted at http://www.americansentinel.edu/Adm-Military-Scholarship.php

I'll be the first to admit that I've been damned lucky to come out unscathed from deployments and temporary duties to hotspots, but I've also seen first hand the devastating injuries that they inflict on the front-liners (Army and Marines). I wish more universities would offer programs along this line.

Think what you like about the war and the current administration, but whether your judgment is fact or folly, these guys paid the price for that decision either way. It speaks well for a DETC institution to offer this, and I’d like to see more RA institutions step up as well.

Folly, but I heartily agree.
