The U.S. military as a whole offers educational benefits to current and retired service members and their families. The most well-known of these is the GI Bill, which intends to provide eligible individuals with the money they need to pursue further education. The GI Bill only applies to current active duty and reserve service members unless they elect to pass their benefits on to family members. Service members may also be eligible to take standardized tests for free through DANTES or have student loans repaid if they are in a medical field. Family members of fallen service members are offered special scholarships for their education.
