Just separated from the Military a few months ago.
Would like to attain IT certifications such as ITIL, CompTIA Security+, MCP, and CCNA.
How can I get my GI bill to pay for the certification exams?
How can I take these exams for free? Are there some entities for veterans that offer this for free?

I plan on registering for college classes for a BA in IT service management but not sure which schools are the best for that in WA State via college campus or online schools nation wide.

Where can I get my foot in the door as a ITSM (entry level)? ...contracting companies, DoD, DoA...?

Any and all help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
