GI Bill Signed

Today, President Bush signed the new GI Bill. No idea how it fits into the context of this blog, but I couldn't help writing about it. I think this is a pretty awesome event and provides an opportunity for a lot of people.
I've been hearing from friends as well as the web, that the GI bill hasn't been what it used to be and only covers 60-70% of public school costs.
According to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), "the GI Bill passed today closely resembles the education benefits that were offered to World War II veterans...It provides the full cost of tuition and enrollment fees up to the most expensive public college in each state and includes a monthly housing stipend and $1000 per year for books and supplies."

Yay, for a brighter future!
