Forever GI Bill Heads to President’s Desk

National VFW - 8/7/2017

On Wednesday, the Senate advanced H.R. 3218, the Forever GI Bill, which would ensure more veterans and their survivors have an opportunity to pursue their educational goals, such as Purple Heart recipients who do not have the requisite three years of active service; veterans attending schools that close abruptly; thousands of involuntarily activated Reservists and Guardsmen; surviving family members; and it eliminates the 15-year use-or-lose limitation, which means veterans truly have a lifetime to use their GI Bill. "The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is extremely pleased with the swift passage of this bill. The GI Bill is one of our nation’s best tools for setting our veterans up for future success,” said VFW National Commander Keith Harman. "This new legislation improves upon that tool.” The bill awaits President Trump’s signature. Watch the VFW-hosted press conference on passage of this landmark bill.
