On this Veterans Day, we'll discuss the sometimes difficult transition veterans face when they move from from military service to college. Many veterans use their GI benefits to gain access to higher education, but studies show student veterans face challenges other than financial ones -- challenges such as adjusting to civilian life and isolation. We're joined by several veterans and some of those helping them with the transition from combat to college.
