My name is Staff Sergeant Fernandez, I’m 28 years old and I was born in Paterson, New Jersey. I enlisted in the United States Army February 2010 with an Airborne Infantry contract. I attended basic combat training in Fort Benning, Georgia. I’ve served in three different units; deployed twice to Afghanistan, and attended multiple distinguished Army schools like Airborne, Air Assault, Basic Leaders Course, Advance Leaders Course, Javelin and Casualty Response Training etc. I am currently attending Grand Canyon University (GCU) online, pursuing a degree in Business Management.
I have two dogs by the names of Bruce Lee (Pitbull) and Bruce Wayne (French bulldog). My favorite type of music is Salsa and R&B. Exploring and learning different cultures is one of my favorite hobbies. I started training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Gracie Barra one year ago and I’m currently a blue belt. Training Jiu-Jitsu has been one of the best experiences of my life. My current job is to inform the public on the multiple opportunities the United States Army offers.

WHAT IS THE GI BILL?
During World War II, in response to a growing need to better compensate military veterans, Congress enacted the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944. Signed into law by Franklin D. Roosevelt on June 22 of that year, the GI Bill was designed to provide veterans with education and vocational benefits after discharge. The bill also provided for unemployment allowances, loan guarantees, and job counseling.
Since then, Congress has enacted several expansions to the original GI Bill benefits, including the Post 9/11 GI Bill, and the Montgomery GI Bill. As a Soldier, you will qualify for different GI Bill benefits depending on a number of factors, including your length of service, and whether you choose to serve on active duty or Army Reserve status.
