Predatory CollegesSeptember 21, 2018 | :
by SEN. PATTY MURRAY (D-WASH.)
This fall, hundreds of thousands of veterans are attending college with help from the GI Bill, benefits they earned in their service to our country. First created in the 1940s and signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the GI Bill has helped millions of veterans pursue a college degree or vocational training so they can get good jobs here at home and be a part of the middle class. It’s just one of the many ways our country follows through on our solemn obligation to the men and women who were willing to sacrifice everything to defend our rights and freedoms.
As the daughter of a World War II veteran myself, and a voice for hundreds of thousands of veterans in my home state of Washington, I strongly support the enduring legacy of the GI Bill, and I was proud Congress acted last year to expand and modernize the program.
