Xavier University created its Veterans Affairs Office (http://www.xavier.edu/caps/programs-for-veterans.cfm) in November 2009 to attract and support the growing number of veterans returning to college. That number is growing as a result of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, which became effective on Aug. 1, 2009. The bill provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after Sept. 11, 2001, or individuals honorably discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. The office is led by Nate Davis, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.
RecruitMilitary (http://www.recruitmilitary.com ) will produce the Expo in cooperation with The American Legion (http://www.legion.org), an association of veterans who served during times of war. The Legion has about 2.4 million members in 14,000 posts throughout the world. Congress chartered and incorporated the association in 1919.
RecruitMilitary has scheduled 45 additional Expos for 2011. Those events will take place in Atlanta, Baltimore, Birmingham, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati (on September 22), Colorado Springs, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, Nashville, New York, Norfolk, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Richmond, St. Louis, San Diego, San Jose, Tacoma, Tampa, and Washington.
