Sgt. Jesse Barth, a mechanic with the Illinois National Guard, pauses for this undated photo during a one-year tour in Iraq that stretched between 2006 and 2007. Barth, along with about 30 other veterans enrolled at Illinois Central College, have not received various education benefits from the U.S. Veterans Administration. Barth has been unable to get the VA to answer his calls to explain the delay, and ICC hasn't had much better luck with the agency.
