Spouses serve alongside our heroes, and I believe they deserve an opportunity to earn their education, or a skill set so they can better serve their family. Ultimately, we are setting military families up to be more successful especially when they transition back into civilian life," said Jimmy Rogers, U.S. Navy Veteran and Co-Founder of Boots For Troops.
