G.I. Bill Challenges

Just because you have the G.I. Bill in your back pocket, doesn't mean college is paid for. That's what recent veterans are finding out when they complete their service and return home to head to school.

U.S. Marine Holt Myers says he is grateful for the bill, but he opted to head to WTA&MU, instead of a larger school down state, because it was affordable.

"Say Texas A&M or UT-Austin or a private school, it won't cover all your expenses, all those veterans would need a job or tuition assistance loans," says Myers. 

Myers has a part time job to help support himself. He hopes to transfer to A & M at College Station, but to do that, he'd have to find a full-time job.
