My name is Josh. This is my story. I serve my country as an Ocean Engineer in the United States Coast Guard. I've been on Active Duty since 1998 and have earned two masters degrees. By agreeing to serve an additional four years, I was able to transfer 36 months of the Post-9/11 GI Bill between my three kids. Both my wife and I went to school and graduated debt-free. It's important to us that our children can do the same. Having an advanced education means they can enter a profession they love and can succeed in. The Post-9/11 GI Bill is giving our family that opportunity.
