G.I. Bill Affords Law Partner with Life-Changing Experience

In what turned out to be an eye-opening experience about fierce international competition, Managing Partner Greg T. Rinckey has returned from ten day trip to Beijing, China where among other things, he toured the factory that makes products for clothing retailer H&M. Rinckey, one of thirty students in the Executive MBA program through SUNY Albany who made the trip, was the only one afforded the opportunity through the G.I. Bill.

The G.I. Bill, originally passed in 1944, provided college or vocational training for returning World War II veterans, commonly referred to as G.I.’s. In 2009, Congress approved an expansion of benefits for military veterans serving since September 11, 2001. Rinckey, who was honorably discharged from the Army JAG Corp in 2004, saw this as a perfect opportunity to continue his education.

“I think it’s important that all eligible veterans know about this valuable opportunity,” says Tully Rinckey Managing Partner Greg T. Rinckey. “My trip to China is just one example of the experiences that await deserving veterans who’re interested in continuing their education.”

In addition to touring factories and eating authentic Chinese cuisine, Rinckey also witnessed and walked the Great Wall of China. He describes China as a beautiful country, but one that has paid the price for its industrialization, noting the grey and smog-filled skies. He says it’s no surprise the U.S. and other countries cannot compete with China based on the poor conditions, low pay and long hours workers endure.
