My name is Tahitia. I am a Veteran of the United States Air Force. This is my story. I served as a Data Systems Technician for four years and was deployed to Afghanistan. My dream has always been to become an archeologist and travel the world. I tried school before, but working three jobs made it impossible to focus on my studies. Now, thanks to the Post-9/11 GI Bill, I am attending the University of Maryland majoring in Anthropology/Archaeology. My tuition is paid in full; I receive a housing allowance and also get money for books. The Post-9/11 GI Bill is making my dream a reality.
