POSTWAR COURSES – SOLDIER HAS RECOMMENDATION FOR THE GI BILL

Dear YANK:

As it stands, the GI Bill of Rights offers splendid educational opportunities for those in a position to take advantage of it. However, many of us will be unable to continue formal education for such legitimate reasons as going businesses, age, dependency, obligations, etc.

Why not extend Armed Forces Institute privileges on a cost basis to the veteran who cannot or chooses not to go back to college?

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signs The Servicemen’s Readjustment Act, otherwise known as the GI Bill of Rights on June 22, 1944. The act provided ex-servicemen with higher education opportunities, low-cost home mortgages and low-interest loans to start a business. 51% of retuning WWII GIs took advantage of the GI Bill.
