Story #32: GI Bill opened the Pathway to UNH Law for Josh Denton–who passed the bar today


We want to congratulate Josh Denton. Josh found out earlier today that he passed the New Hampshire bar exam. It's a big milestone.

So if you ask Josh if he's better off now than he was four years ago, he'll give you a pretty clear answer. Josh served in Iraq, and told us that programs like the GI Bill opened up opportunities for him that simply didn't exist 5 year's ago.

“I decided to join the service because I grew up listening to stories about my grandfather who was a World War II veteran and prisoner of war. Hearing about his experiences inspired me to join the Army. Everyone sacrificed during World War II, but then the greatest generation returned home and used the GI Bill to create the middle class and make America an economic powerhouse.”

“The GI Bill went into effect in 2009 and that’s how I had the opportunity to attend UNH Law. I always wanted to go to law school and this gave me the chance to pursue that dream.”

“President Obama’s been a great advocate for veterans. Between voting for and implementing the GI Bill, he’s proven his commitment to veterans and their families time and time again. He has kept his promises and demonstrated his strength as Commander-in-Chief by ending the war in Iraq responsibly."

"I’m definitely doing better than I was 4 years ago. And it's thanks to Barack Obama.”

If you're with Josh say you're in and commit to vote for Barack Obama right now.
