Veteran Using Chapter 31 Program to Fund His Education Advises Others That “It's Never Too Late”



Sep 15, 2014

Robert Adams, a veteran of the U. S. Marine Corps, was seeking an education using funding through the VA’s Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation program when he enrolled at the Richmond Campus.  But after relocating, he was able to transfer his credits and his benefits to the Cleveland Campus, where he’s working toward his business administration-management degree.


While in the Marines, Robert served as an administrative clerk at Camp Lejeune, and after leaving the military, he worked for many years as a fork lift operator.  He came to American National University to earn his degree in management with a goal of opening his own business in the future. “In order to start a business, you’ve got to know business,” he explained.

At National, Robert is building a strong foundation of business skills, and he’s enjoyed all of his classes, from economics to human resources.  “I learned something from each and every one of them,” he said. 

Robert has seen many of his family members have great success when they returned to school later in life, and he feels that you’re never too old to earn a college degree. “It’s never too late,” he said.  “If there’s something you want to do, then I would suggest you do it, and American National University is a nice school to go to.”

Student and Veteran Robert Adams is using military funding to work toward a degree in business administration-management.
