There are a number of different bills that are in Congress that are in support for members of the United States Military and our citizen soldiers. The newest bill is to give support for members of the military that wish to participate in distance learning, either while on active duty or after they leave active duty service.
There are funds and programs in the GI Bill that have come into being after September 11th, and many members of the Military would be eligible to receive a living stipend under the current bill and legislation.
The House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman introduced last Tuesday and it serves to help provide funds for Veteran?s education benefits that could take place as early as August 1st. The bill itself is one sponsored by Representative Bob Filner, D- California and it will address several of the largest complaints about holes in the Veterans Support area.
Veterans will be provided fees and tuition for distance learning, and a $1000 allowance for books and supplies each year. This is the on top of benefits for the new GI bill that give a monthly stipend for military education support.
Many people join the military and feel excellent about the high quality of support for training and education. During the current employment situation in our nation, the National Guard and Reserves is one of the best opportunities, you are able to train part time, and when activated you have a lot of active duty pay, benefits and education that you qualify for, you and your dependents.
