by Jim Absher
In Congressional hearings this week the VA has said it is facing problems implementing some parts of the Harry J Colmery GI Bill, better known as the “Forever GI Bill”.
The law, signed in August removes the 15 year time limitation that newer veterans have to use their GI Bill. It also gives back GI Bill entitlement to some veterans who were in schools that closed mid-term, creates a new program for STEM students, makes more guard and reserve members eligible for benefits, and more.
