NASHVILLE, TN (WRCB) -

Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam is making sure more veterans returning home, receive a higher education.

Haslam announced Thursday, a newly formed task force to evaluate how to best serve Tennessee vets when it comes to continuing education.

The task force will focus on identifying common hurdles for transitioning veterans.  And make recommendations on improving opportunities beyond high school.  The task force is part of the governor's "Drive to 55" initiative.

The goal is to raise the number of Tennesseans with continued education from where it stands at 32percent, to 55 percent, by the year 2025.
