Veterans looking to get a college education will have a little extra help. That's thanks to a new program that kicked off Thursday in Morgantown.
It's called "Camo to Cap".
The goal of the program is to increase local support for veterans when they return home.
Folks with it collect and give away supplies the vets would need for school.
About 90 percent of vets wind up dropping out of college.
Organizers hope this added support changes that.
"We took care of them when they were away by sending them care packages," Jamie Summerlin, one of organizers, said. "(Now) they're back home trying to better themselves. We don't want them to feel like they're being forgotten."
