“Beefed Up” GI Bill Advances, But Some Veteran Groups Want More

The House veterans affairs committee unanimously approved changes to the Post-9/11 GI Bill Wednesday. It is one of two bills introduced in the last month to better educational benefits to future veterans.

If passed, the new GI Bill, a major enlistment enticement for service members, would no longer feature the 15-year “use it or lose it” time limit. While this has been largely well received, some say it doesn’t go far enough.

In addition, another bill would require educational benefits to be made available to those wishing to attend certain pre-apprenticeship programs that currently must be paid for out of pocket. “ Beefed Up” GI Bill
