It’s easy to search for groups. When you begin typing a search term into the search bar, the site will automatically make suggestions for you. You can choose one of these, or click the search button for a list of results.Let’s say, for example, you are thinking of returning to school. You might want to join a group on the GI Bill to help get support, updates, and ask the community questions about the process. You could also join your state or city group to see if any local vets have recommendations for good Veterans-friendly schools.
This pulls up the GI Bill Information Group. As you can see there are three members in this group already. To join in on their discussion, simple click the join button.
