The Virginia Community College System believes that members of the active duty military and veterans of our armed services deserve not only our respect, but our support.
This site is devoted to the military community and designed to give those who are serving, and have served, our country the information they need to take advantage of the educational benefits they have earned while defending the United States.
An important resource for veterans, active duty military and their families is the veterans affairs offices at each Virginia Community College.
