The Yellow Ribbon Program for VA Eligible Students
By Judy Konitzer

If a spouse or child is looking to further their education, the Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) may be for you if you are eligible for the VA Post 9/11 GI Bill. I personally would have loved having this additional assistance as we educated our seven children, however at the time it was not available. Before retiring this past October, our son-in-law transferred his VA education benefits to his children and recently learned about the Yellow Ribbon Program. As a result, our grandchildren will be able to apply for it when it is time for them to enroll in college and help defray some of the additional expenses they may encounter.
