This in from www.armytimes.com A sweeping new Veterans’ education package has been approved as part of the 2008 war budget. The package is designed to fully cover the cost of completing four years of college-including tuition and fees, books and living expenses-and to let career troops share those benefits with dependents.

 This bill will offer a benefit worth an average of $80,000.00.

For more info, contact your US Congressperson. Yours, in this neighborhood is Congressman Joe Crowley, a super supporter of veterans and things veteran.
