As American military operations in Iraq have ended and other soldiers are returning from Afghanistan, Collegiate Nation, the nation's only student-exclusive social site that has banned all ads and all tracking, announced today its desire to hear from U.S. military veterans attending college or trying to enroll. The company is inviting blog posts from military veterans who, after serving their country, are doing everything they can to transform their lives by pursuing higher education goals.
