We need veterans to attend the top universities in the U.S. and the U.K. Not only do veterans deserve the kinds of high quality educations available at places like Yale, Stanford, and Oxford, but mixing of students is one way to ensure that gap between civilians and military doesn't grow. Wesleyan and Vassar, two "little ivies" as this article puts it, have started scholarship programs for returning veterans. I hope other schools follow suit. This should be part of any "diversity" discussion about elite higher education.
