SALUTE National Honor Society & Student Veterans of America

SALUTE is the only national honor society in the nation recognizing and honoring the service and the  scholastic achievement of this generation’s greatest veterans.  https://salute.colostate.edu/  

Student Veterans Of America (SVA) officially incorporated in January 2008   https://studentveterans.org/chapter

SVA provide programs, resources, and support to the ever-evolving network of local student veteran organizations. Each of these  independent groups could then join the umbrella coalition as a chapter. SVA and a number of Veteran Service Organizations were tirelessly advocating for an overhaul of the G.I. Bill to address the needs of the 21st Century student veteran. Six months after SVA's founding, President George W. Bush signed into law the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill.
