70th Anniversary of the GI Bill
I Want You This summer, VA celebrates the 70th Anniversary of the GI Bill, which provided a wide range of benefits for Veterans returning from World War II, including low-cost home loans, education and vocational training. As part of this celebration, VA will be sharing GI Bill success stories on their website and through social media.
We need your help connecting with Veterans and their beneficiaries who have used the GI Bill to complete their education goals and would be interested in helping celebrate the 70th Anniversary by sharing their story. In addition, stories from those who have utilized VA’s home loan guaranty benefit and VR&E services are also being collected. If you are a “success story” or you know someone who is — please email GIBILL.VBACO@va.gov and one of their team members will respond to collect additional details.
We are especially interested in stories that showcase:
- Multiple generations who have utilized GI Bill benefits from one family
- Multiple use of home loan guaranty benefit
- Specially adaptive housing (SHA) grant use
- Small and large business owners, Veterans serving Veterans; who utilized GI Bill benefits and/or VR&E services
Please help us make the 70th Anniversary Celebration a success!
