Since 2009 the heroes that serve our country have been able to transfer the G.I. Bill benefits to their dependents or spouse. Over the past 10 years since this policy has been active, over 1 million Veterans have chosen to give their benefits to their family. We believe this program honors the sacrifice that Servicemembers make to earn these benefits by ensuring Veterans can choose how to utilize the benefits in the way that is best for them and their family.
However, the Department of Defense will be making changes to their policies making it impossible for some to transfer their benefits to their children. We believe that showing our gratitude to Veterans is giving Veterans more freedom of choice not less.
Mike and Gabby could not wait to tell us how important being able to transfer the GI Bill was to their family.
