I am going to make this brief. The thing that most of you are missing is that these schools are FOR PROFIT. That means they are selling you an education and trying to make a profit. you don't condem small businesses for trying to turn a profit. Why then would you condem a school for trying to achieve the same thing. If veterans don't feel that the school offers a higher quality that demands a higher cost then they should take their GI bill somewhere else. It is the fault of the veteran not...

If veterans don't feel that the school offers a higher quality that demands a higher cost then they should take their GI bill somewhere else. It is the fault of the veteran not the fault of the school. As for these ad's geared towards veterans they fail to give a single example of an ad campaign. They merely speak in vague generalities to stir up emotion and have you sign the petition before you have a chance to really see the truth behind their attempt.

The point that is being missed here, Zach Murphy, is that weather a company is for profit, non-profit, smal or large, illegal activity is still illegal. No one should be financially raped by any institution committing illegal acts. The fact that you seem to find this behavior defendable, is crying shame. The soldiers of this country put their lives on the line whenever they are called to, with no questions asked. They should not have to worry what's happening to thier money that is to support thier families.

Leah Hawes The activity here is not illegal it is the basic premis of capitalism. I suppose this is my own fault I failed to mention the fact that I am indeed a veteran. Nothing that is going on here is a bad thing. They feel like they can offer a better education than other institutions so they charge more. If you disagree then don't go there. do a little bit of research before you just sign up for a college. Advertising and targeting a specific group of people isn't illegal it's intelligent.

Mr. Murphy, per your post you sound like you may not be a veteran. Try walking in their shoes and see how you feel then.

I think I'll just let that speak for itself! afraid it's the only one I'm comfortable posting. Per UCMJ it's kind of frowned upon to post pictures while on active duty. It poses a security threat that one was during BT.

Veterans need to understand that for profit schools are usually not worth the effort.

Vets have sacrificed, should not be taken advantage by for profit schools when they transition back to civilian life.

None of these for profit colleges should get away with this. They also leave many unsuspecting civilians in crazy debt with false promises so they can get federal finacial aid money. I don't think for profits should be elligible. It's not like these jokers put the money to scholarships and have endowments. I have to watch which ones I mention as I have family that have paid for this but AIU, Strayer and Walden should be cut off from federal aid and many more. If your school is owned by...

If your school is owned by companies like the Washington post or stock symbol ceco you should think twice. They are dying and want you as a life preserver.

Our Veterans are our country's heroes and no one should take advantage of them. We should thank them for offering their lives in exchange for the freedoms we enjoy today. Shame on those people who aggressively use tactics to abuse their trust and take away what they have earned, which is not much. They should be well-paid and taken care of. Let's help them!
