The American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, and the House Armed Services Committee worked hard last week to prevent veteran students on the GI Bill from losing some of their basic housing allowances.
Despite all the lobbying, however, the collaboration among organizations and committees accomplished only a temporary fix. Hopefully, for the student vets affected, one that can become a permanent one.
