Since the Post-9/11 GI Bill was enacted in 2008, hundreds of thousands of veterans have used it to access higher education.

But how are all those student veterans doing once they make it to school?

We want your help telling the story of the student veteran experience.

Tell us what it’s been like to transition from the military to the classroom. What’s been easy? What’s been difficult? How is the GI Bill working for you?

We may include your insights in our upcoming stories, or we might contact you to find out more. In any case, your information will remain completely confidential unless you explicitly give us permission on the form to publish your insights. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

Reporter/producer Samara Freemark joined the Public Insight Network after four years at Radio Diaries in New York City, where she spent her time helping ordinary people tell their extraordinary stories for NPR. In the process, she developed an unshakeable belief in the beauty and power of personal narrative.

Before Radio Diaries Samara worked as an environmental reporter, a posting that took her to sinking islands, Superfund sites, and literal snakepits – Burmese pythons, to be exact. She also churned out copy and tape in the newsroom of WUOM Ann Arbor. Before settling on a career in radio she tried out policy research, community organizing, and urban planning before deciding she preferred soundwaves to spreadsheets.
