Yellow ribbons began appearing in large numbers after the Gulf War when the U.S. began sending large numbers of troops overseas to the Middle East.
For a long time ribbons have been kept as a symbol of remembrance of men and women who served in places far from home. They have been kept especially by wives, mothers and sisters in times of war in memory of their soldier boys abroad.
Yellow Ribbon is a scholarship designed to help students supplement their Post 9/11 GI Bill tuition benefits. The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The program is designed to help students avoid up to 100 percent of their out-of-pocket tuition and fees associated with education programs that may exceed the Post 9/11 GI Bill tuition benefit, which will only pay up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition.
