Last week, dozens of Venezuelans living in Texas protested in front of the Venezuelan consulate in Houston, in support of their country’s opposition movement. Anti-government protests in Venezuela are entering their third week and at least five people have died so far in clashes between protesters and riot police.

From Texas Standard:

For those leaving the military, readjusting to civilian life can be a rocky transition. For veterans or families of veterans, trying to juggle college classes and homework assignments on top of that can be frustrating.

 

That's the reality for more than 800,000 college students across the nation. The number of ex-military students at universities is rising thanks to expanded GI Bill, which have increased the number of veterans who qualify for full tuition at state schools in Texas and elsewhere.
