VFW Testifies Before Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee

National VFW - 6/18/2017

On Thursday, VFW Associate Director Pat Murray testified before the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs in support of legislation regarding improvements to the GI Bill. The bill would enhance the GI Bill for Purple Heart recipients, Fry Scholarship recipients, reservists activated without benefits, and students affected by recent school closures. Numerous other bills discussed with the Senate committee would expand benefits and services for veterans. In recent weeks, the VFW has collaborated with our VSO partners to put forth a list of GI Bill improvements we would like to see passed in order to strengthen it and ensure its success long into the future.
