GI Bills Enacted Prior to 2008 and Related Veteransäó» Educational Assistance Programs: A Primer
Cassandria Dortch (au)
The U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA), previously named the Veterans Admin., has been providing veterans educational assistance (GI Bill) benefits since 1944. The benefits have been intended, at various times, to compensate for compulsory service, encourage voluntary service, avoid unemployment, provide equitable benefits to all who served, and promote military retention. In general, the benefits provide grant aid to eligible individuals enrolled in approved educational and training programs. Since three of the GI Bills have overlapping eligibility requirements and the U.S. is expected to wind down involvement in active conflicts, Congress may consider phasing out one or more of the overlapping programs. This report describes the GI Bills enacted prior to 2008.
