In August, Hilton Worldwide and Blackstone announced a partnership with Kendall College in Chicago and the Department of Veteran Affairs to provide a six-month internship and a 26-credit hospitality education program specifically designed for military veterans paid for by the GI Bill.

After serving their country, oftentimes in far-off, dangerous places, these veterans face the prospect of converting their military skills and training into a civilian occupation. For many, that can be a difficult transition.
