Veterans Upward Bound

Roosevelt University partners with the Department of Education to develop “Veterans Upward Bound” program.   In order to find success in today’s society, many veterans are required to enhance their skills. As a result, further education is often the key to starting a second career. Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) is a free-of-charge program (funded by the U.S. Department of Education) that helps veterans, who have not completed a bachelor’s degree, to prepare for enrollment at the college of their choice.

Cook County Recorder urge all veterans to record their DD-214 military discharge records

As we celebrate Memorial Day, Flag Day and Independence Day, I would like our veterans and their families to consider the security of one of the most important documents they possess, their DD-214 military discharge records.
One year ago this Flag Day, my office celebrated the opening of our Veterans Services Office. This was a very proud moment for me, because my family has a proud history of serving this nation. My father and husband have served - as well as my brother and sister - and my son presently serves this great nation as a Captain in the United States Army.
