Most veterans, service members,
reservists and National Guard members who have served since September 11, 2001 will be eligible for financial aid under a new GI bill that took effect on August 1, according to Congresswoman Kaptur. The Post-9/11 GI Bill pays up to 100 percent of tuition and fees, plus a housing allowance and book stipend.
"This is one way that a grateful nation shows it appreciation," said Congresswoman Kaptur. "There is a direct correlation between education and income-earning ability. The new GI Bill will open the doors to higher education and better jobs."
