Winner: Military.com

Launched in 1999 as a resource to keep America's many servicemen and women 'connected and informed,' Military.com currently operates under the umbrella of the popular job website Monster. As such, much of the site focuses on helping veterans find careers, obtain financial aid and generally enjoy an easier readjustment to post-service civilian life.

Of course, part of that readjustment includes education. As such, Military.com contains a sizable section dedicated to helping veterans get a college education. The site's blog hosts articles like '5 Steps to Getting Your Degree' and '10 Top FAQs for GI Bill 2.0,' thus providing indispensable, practical knowledge for the college-bound. It also offers a scholarship finder, giving veterans even more options to help finance an expensive college education, as well as links to ways for veterans to actually earn college credit for their service (like the DANTES tests). All-in-all, if you're a veteran looking to go back to school, Military.com's a fantastic resource, and it proved to be our readers' favorite.

Finalist: GlobalSecurity.org

GlobalSecurity.org's a privately run, independent company that aims to report unbiased information relating to the world of military operations around the globe. In keeping with its mission, its education section offers a wealth of college information - all you've got to do is enter your zip code, desired field of study and type of degree you want and let their search engine find schools to help you achieve your desired outcome. Many of the institutions listed on the site offer distance-learning programs as well, so you can work on your degree even while you're away from home.

Finalist: GoArmyEd

GoArmyEd's an official branch of the U.S. military that supports its Army Continuing Education System (ACES). This site's sole purpose is to help servicemen and women meet their academic goals. To do so, it allows them to find tuition assistance, manage their educational records, seek out degree programs that fit their interests and more. It also serves as a resource for schools that cater to military students' needs - here they can promote their services and report veterans' progress at their institutions.
