Vet Benefits and the GI Bill

Word is the Senate could be voting on the Webb-Mitchell bill next week. The bill is designed to give special educational assistance to veterans who served after 9/11 by extending the time a veteran must use the benefit to 15 years after discharge or release. The bill has been endorsed by veteran advocacy groups like Vote Vets and the VFW. It's a solid bill, and they're planning to lump it in with the Iraq supplemental spending bill, so it has a decent chance of passing.
