AFAP: Newest GI Bill Seen as Victory for Soldiers and Families

Though the road was long and hard, the efforts and advocacy of the Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) have resulted in a major victory for Soldiers and families.

The creation of the Post 9/11 GI Bill was driven by AFAP Issues #497, #385 and #525. It becomes a reality August 1, 2009, and will offer all Soldiers with six years of service the opportunity to transfer unused Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits to their dependents......http://www.army.mil/-news/2009/04/16/19772-soldiers-newest-gi-bill-exceeds-tuition-assistance-also-benefits-dependents/index.html
