I am 26 yrs. old. I live in Allendale, MI. I served as a medic in the Army for 4 years. When I moved back to Michigan, I immediately began searching for a job. I dilligently searched for a year. No one cared about my military medical training. I decided to go to school. I enrolled, and being a single mom, I applied for state aid for day care. I could not afford to live on a part-time salary when I was in school full time and paying out of pocket for day care 40+ hours a week. The state denied my request because of $700/month I received from the GI Bill. I could not afford school, then, because I was a single mom and a veteran.
