Post G.I. Bill Changes

By December 30, 2012

Follow me on:

The maximum Post-9/11 GI Bill payment for tuition and fees at private and foreign schools will increase to $19,198.31 for the 2013-14 academic year, the Veterans Affairs Department has announced, according to an Army Times story.

The new cap, which will take effect on Aug. 1, is a 6.2 percent increase over the current limit. That is almost double the 3.3 percent hike that took effect for the current 2012-13 academic year.

WHEN MY MOM DIED, MY SISTER’S,A BROTHER AND MY SO CALLED STEP DAD, THEY ALL WENT THROUGH HER THING’S, THAT SAME NIGHT SHE DIED AND THE DIVIDED ALL HER THING’S UP TO EACH OTHER. THEY DIDN’T CALL ME.I DIDN’T GET ANYTHING THAT WAS MY MOM’S. ALL I GOT WAS A SMALL BAG OF BLACK AND WHITE PHOTO’S OF MEMBER’S OF THE FAMILY IN MILITARY UNIFORM AND I DON’T KNOW WHO THEY ARE. NOR DO I KNOW HOW TO FIND OUT. I WAS HOPING THERE WAS A WAY YOU COULD HELP ME FIND OUT WHO THEY ARE. IT WOULD MEAN A LOT TO ME. NOT ONLY WOULD I BE ABLE TO KNOW THEIR NAME AND HOW THEY ARE RELATED TO ME, BUT ONCE I FIND OUT, THAT PERSON MIGHT BE SOMEONE MY SIBLINGS WISH THEY HAD A PICTURE OF. THEY HAVE USED ME AND WALKED ON MY FOR SO LONG. THEY EVEN ACCUSED ME OF TRYING TO KILL MY OWN MOTHER IN 95. SHE DIED OF LUNG CANCER IN 04. PLEASE, PLEASE TELL ME THERE’S A WAY YOU CAN HELP, PLEASE.
