Veterans Education Success is an advocacy group that has reportedly worked closely with former church members.

“In some cases they actually target service members, coaching them on how to get out of the military with false medical claims–so that they can not only take advantage of their GI Bill, but also take advantage of their medical and disability compensation. It’s pretty shocking stuff,” Will Hubbard said. Hubbard is the Vice President for Veterans & Military Policy at Veterans Education Success.

The nonprofit group asked the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to investigate the allegations.

“Everything that we’ve seen indicates they operate well outside the scope of the law and in a lot of cases, very questionable manner–such that they’re taking advantage of veterans, service members and in some cases not even allowing them to leave,” Hubbard said.
