Post 9/11 GI BIll

Christine Engel, education and Training chief here, shows Staff Sgt. Ronda Thomas, 47th Force Support Squadron, a pamphlet describing the benefits offered by the new GI Bill plan at the base education office July 22. The new plan, called Post-911 GI Bill, is scheduled to take effect August 2009. Under the new plan, eligible individuals will receive a percentage, as determined by the length of creditable active-duty service. The amount of tuition and fees will not exceed the most expensive in-state public institution of higher education. Eligible individuals will also receive a monthly housing allowance equal to the basic allowance for housing payable to a military E-5 with dependents in the same zip code as the school, and a yearly stipend of up to $1,000 for books and supplies.
