Big day for our Stormers! @IAVA spearheads crucial legislation to protect the New GI Bill: #StormtheHill

"The New GI Bill is one of the single greatest tools new veterans have to protect against unemployment in this tough economy. IAVA fought hard for its historic passage in 2008, and we applaud Chairman Murray, Senators Akaka and Begich for stepping up to protect it. Great careers start with a great education. But right now, vets lack clear and consistent information about their education opportunities. Identifying the right school or program is the first crucial step towards getting the best education and training for the job market. The GI Bill Consumer Awareness Act will give vets a head start, so they can apply to the school that’s right for them and take full advantage of the benefits they’ve earned,” said IAVA Founder and Executive Director Paul Rieckhoff.
