The New GI Billby Michael Patrick Brewer on Aug. 04, 2009, under Politics
Combat can be complicated. Paying for college when you get home shouldn’t be.
Effective August 1, 2008, our military has a new GI Bill for servicemen and veterans, including reservists, who have served at least 90 days combat duty since 9/11.
Now that bill is going into effect, there are lots of questions and the VA’s system to claim GI Bill benefits is complicated.
IAVA wants to make sure all veterans know how to maximize their new benefits. That’s why they’ve launched a public outreach campaign anchored by the innovative website, www.NewGIBill.org.
IAVA intends to follow up with more updates on applying for the benefits.
