Support Our Service Members

Yesterday Tom Udall joined with other members of the House of Representatives to introduce the Post-9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Act, also known as the new GI Bill. The Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, also known as the GI Bill, was originally enacted by congress to provide for veterans returning from World War II. The GI Bill enabled a generation of veterans to get a college degree and help build the strongest economy our country had ever seen.

But the benefits provided for in the GI Bill have not kept up. With college costs skyrocketing, our veterans deserve a new GI Bill that will pay for a full four-year college education.

Visit to become a co-sponsor.
