The men and women who serve our nation fight bravely every day to ensure the freedoms we take for granted, such as access to education.

It is only fitting that, when military personnel make the transition from combat to civilian, that universities try to warrant the needs of veteran soldiers.

Luckily, one local university continues to stay true to their word of helping veterans and was recognized for their efforts.

For the third consecutive year, Louisiana Tech University was named a Military Friendly School By Victory Media Inc., the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning to civilian life.

The 2016 Military Friendly Schools highlights more than 1,400 institutions around the United States that exhibit best practices in support of military students and employees.

Higher education institutions complete an extensive survey covering 10 indicators of success that included support for student veterans on campus, graduation and employment outcomes and military spouse polices.

Tech offers on-base degree programs at Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier City. The university has offered these program since 1965.

Working with the U.S. Air Force, Tech provides post-secondary educations programs designed to met the needs of the Air Force and other military personnel.

Enrollment priority is given to military members, programs and services, enrollment is also offered to retirees, civil service workers, dependents and off-base civilians.

According to its website, Victory Media said that nearly 400,000 active duty, National Guard and Armed Forces Reserve service members will transition their skills to campuses and companies nationwide this year.

Tech continues to lead as one of the leading universities in helping some of those 400,000 soldiers, airmen, marines and other military personnel.

The Ruston Daily Leader commends Tech for the honor and their continued support of helping our military.

Without these brave men and women, our access to education would cease to exist.
