Senator: Education Bill for Montana Troops Gains AdvocatesJune 20, 2017 | :
(U.S. Senate) – Veterans and advocates are throwing their support behind U.S. Senator Jon Tester’s legislation to ensure that service members who often have to leave behind their jobs and homes to serve their country will not lose out on educational opportunities.
Tester’s Educational Development (ED) for Troops and Veterans Act received a hearing in the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee today. The bill protects troops from financial hardship that comes with deployments and ensures service men and women get the educational benefits they have earned.
