Congress Expands Post 9/11 G.I. Bill Benefits
||Thanks to the hard work of the DAV and its supporters, Congress made vital improvements to the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill at the end of the last session. The new legislation provides more opportunities for vocational training, expands eligibility for National Guard members, and provides severely injured veterans with more time to use their benefits.
DAV Focuses on Care for Women Veterans
||Committed to reversing longstanding inequality among service members, the DAV joined other groups to host a forum on VA healthcare for women veterans. DAV National Adjutant Art Wilson declared that "the DAV is determined to work with the VA to provide these women with the excellent care they earned through their sacrifice."
