It depends on which GI bill you have. I don't know where you are, but Ohio grants in-state tuition to all veterans (and their kids), so that's something to consider. Depending how recently you got out, other schools have special "deals" for vets, some related to the 9-11 GI Bill/Yellow Ribbon program, some not.

USCG here. Former USNR. If you are a Texas vet then check out the Hazelwood act. It allows up to 180 credit hours at any public Uni in the state after you have exhausted all federal resources (read GI Bill). I know of at least one guy who went to U of Houston on that bill and was using the rest of the credits to get a degree in flying (a pilots license).

US, Afghans Sweep Taliban Stronghold

Quote
MARJAH, Afghanistan - Thousands of U.S. Marines and Afghan soldiers stormed the Taliban stronghold of Marjah by air and ground Saturday, meeting only scattered resistance but facing a daunting thicket of bombs and booby traps that slowed the allied advance through the town.

The massive offensive was aimed at establishing Afghan government authority over the biggest southern town under militant control and breaking the Taliban grip over a wide area of their southern heartland.

Maj. Gen. Nick Carter, NATO commander of forces in southern Afghanistan, said Afghan and coalition troops, aided by 60 helicopters, made a "successful insertion" into Marjah in southern Helmand province. He said the operation was going "without a hitch."

Thousands of British, U.S. and Canadian troops also swept into Taliban areas to the north of Marjah, seeking to clear a wide swath of villages that had been under Taliban control for several years.

No coalition casualties had been reported more than 12 hours after the initial airborne assault, but NATO said three U.S. soldiers were killed Saturday in a bombing elsewhere in southern Afghanistan.

Absolutely yes.  And thank you to all for your service.

As to law school, service will help considerably in areas of focus and a steady, disciplined pace.  That is one of the keys to productive law study.  Avoid a frenetic, panicked approach that is so often the (bad) norm.  You'll also likely find a good deal of respect from faculty, most students, and, even moreso, from employers.

Again, thank you, and good luck,

Thane.
