More media reports are calling attention to the debt we owe veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bob Herbert in the NY Times describes the bill, sponsored by Senators Webb and Lugar (both veterans of other wars) which expands the opportunities offered to veterans. It is a renewal of the kind of G.I. Bill that served this country so well after World War II and Korea. The bill has not received much publicity, but perhaps it’s time for ordinary citizens to let legislators know how we want them to vote on this issue.
