President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama travelled to Fort Stewart in Hinesville, Georgia. They spoke to soldiers, veterans and military families of the Third Infantry Division.
The President signed an executive order today that is intended to help U.S. military personnel, veterans and their families to avoid becoming victims of education fraud.
The order requires educational institutions to cut down on aggressive marketing techniques used to target people using military education benefits and to inform them about the amount of debt they will take on.
The president last visited Savannah in March 2010, when he toured Savannah Technical College in Georgia and made remarks on jobs and his economic policies.
President Obama’s most recent trip to Georgia was to attend fundraisers in Atlanta where the Atlantic Journal-Constitution reported that he helped raise more than $1 million in March for his re-election campaign.
