GI Stories

Arthur W. Forrester '49

World War II had ended, and my Navy years were over. Returning to family and friends and familiar settings, I found that something new awaited me.

It was called the GI Bill of Rights. My country was showing its gratitude by underwriting my undergraduate academic experience. And so I initiated, and completed my B.A. Degree.

Three further academic degrees followed, all of which I paid for myself. During these years, I was employed full-time, married, and welcomed a daughter and son into my family.

I received ministerial ordination, taught at both under-graduate and graduate university levels, and was licensed as a clinical psychologist.

What got the ball rolling? The GI Bill of Rights!
