Operation College Promise (Ocp) Supports Bipartisan Assembly Initiative Establishing Annual“Veterans Education Awareness Week”

Operation College Promise (OCP) announced today its support for Assembly Joint Resolution 25, establishing the second full week of each November as “Veterans Education Awareness Week.” The concept for establishing the week was launched in 2011 as an effort to encourage all veterans’ service providers to educate Post-9/11 era veterans and servicemembers on the education entitlements they have earned as a result of their service. The bipartisan resolution, AJR 25, sponsored by Assemblywoman Cleopatra Tucker (D-Essex) and Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose (R-Morris, Sussex, Warren), requests the Governor to issue a proclamation calling on public officials and citizens to observe the week with appropriate activities and programs.

“The education benefits I earned through my service gave me the opportunity I needed to get my degree and I encourage all veterans to utilize these entitlements to reach their higher education objectives,” said Bryan Adams, Army Combat Veteran and Marketing Specialist for the Trenton-based Operation College Promise. “I am pleased to work with OCP in continuing to strive toward assuring that my peers are aware of the education benefits they have earned and optimize them to meet their higher education objectives.”
