The hard part comes after the bill is made law.

The post-9/11 GI Bill was supposed to extend education benefits to military veterans.  The law took effect in August 2009.  One month later, about 251 thousand students had submitted benefits claims.  And by all indications, the Department of Veterans Affairs wasn’t ready for them.  Two student veterans at Fordham tell their story.
