Thanks for the feedback!
The GI Bill provided many subsidies for veterans. Money for education was one of the most important. This was part of the effort to smooth the abrupt change to a postwar econo…my by improving the job skills (and therefore the incomes) of returning veterans.
Government Issued Bill
Yes they will.
GI or G.I. is a term describing a member of the US armed forces or an item of their equipment. It may be used as an adjective or as a noun. The term is often thought to be… an initialism of "Government Issue" but the origin of the term is in fact galvanized iron after the letters "GI" that used to denote equipment such as metal trash cans made from it in U.S. Army inventories and supply records. During World War I, US soldiers sardonically referred to incoming German artillery shells as "GI cans". During World War I it was somehow assumed that GI stood for Government Issue and the term was applied to all military equipment and the soldiers themselves (another incorrect interpretation is General Infantry). The term reached even farther use as its usage spread with the American troops during World War II. A comparable nickname for a member of the British armed forces is "Tommy" or "Digger" in the Australian and New Zealand Armed forces. Government Issue. It stems from a casual joke amongst soldiers that they were property of the US Army. The GI in GI Bill means Government Issue or sometimes General Issue. At one time it stood for galvanized iron. Galvanized iron was used by the logistics services of the Armed Forces at one time.
The middle class expanded as working class men were able to go to college
GI is a nickname started when, in WWI, army issued equipment would be stamped with GI standing for Galvonized Iron. It eventually stretched to being used for American Soldiers…. That is what it stands for in the instance of the GI Bill of Rghts.
More than 1 million World War II veterans enrolled in college in 1946
helped many former soldiers buy houses and go to college
The primary purpose of the Montgomery GI Bill was to provide opportunities and economic help to veterans. This included sending them to college.
Yes, I believe so. The GI Bill is not a wage substitute or income supplement. It simply allows you access to certain benefits (education - home ownership - etc).
The bill began in 1944 to stimulate the economy and education of soldiers returning from war. It has its roots in a similar bill that came right after the Civil War.
The GI Bill was created to send those that served in the United States armed forces during World War 2 to college. Many veterans were back home and did not know what to do wit…h themselves so the government had the idea to send them to college.
On the old Montgomery GI Bill, the limit is 10 years after your last day in service. On the new Post 9/11 GI Bill, the limit is 15 years. You can request to change from …the Montgomery to the Post 9/11 GI Bill, and the limit will change to 15 years. There are advantages to both systems however, depending on your situation. Don't change over blindly, do your homework. I read up on it a bit, and decided to stick with the old Montgomery system. The Post 9/11 GI Bill provides BAH to students attending full time, but your classes have to be on campus, not on-line. There's a catch to everything.

In US Congress
Congress had passed the GI bill in order to help returning troops who were having a hard time when they arrived in America.
In US Civil War
The Serviceman's Readjustment Act of 1944 or the (GI Bill of Rights). It provided returning veterans the opportunity for a good life via a free college education or low in…terest loans on homes. The idea was given to Franklin Delano Roosevelt by the American Legion, who believed returning soldiers needed a transition into a new life than just a check for services done.
In World War 2
Allowed more people to afford college. Can you believe that certain colleges won't accept your GI Bill! This is absolutely crazy after all your hard years of service you migh…t not be able to attend the college you want to go to.
