1. House Passes New GI Bill/ Senate to Vote This Week
Despite the surprise defeat of the war supplemental funding package in the House last week, the VFW-backed GI Bill did pass in a separate vote by 256-166. This week, the Senate is expected to take up its version of the war supplemental – possibly Tuesday or Wednesday.
Please contact your Senators and urge them to include S. 22 in the War Supplemental – this language provides a GI Bill much like the WWII comprehensive education package. VFW has made this a priority goal. We are so close, but we need your help. Call your Senators today – tell them to vote YES in support of this GI Bill, S. 22. It is the right thing to do for today and tomorrow’s veterans!
