BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – A new state law is lending a hand to military veterans by requiring state colleges and licensure boards to honor military education and experience by awarding school credits and/or trade certificates.

House Bill 338, sponsored by Representative Paul Lee, requires each board of a state public education institution, community college or technical school to award certain educational credits to a veteran enrolled in the institution for courses that were part of the student’s military training or service.
