Special to The Hays Daily News

Victory Media recently named Fort Hays State University as a military friendly school for a fifth consecutive year. Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business founded in 2001.

The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country doing the most to embrace America's military service members, veterans and spouses as students.

The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year's list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.

"Having won this honor several years, it speaks highly to our commitment to the military and to the support staff we have in place to assist them in their education," said Dennis King, director of the Virtual College and learning technologies at FHSU. "We enjoy having military students in our program because they bring high-quality and real-world experience that helps out all our students."

A full story and detailed list of 2013 Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in early October.
