The Cherokee County 912 Project sponsored a town hall with local North Carolina elected officials on August 25th, 2011. The following video from Dirk Epperly shows how our government treats our veterans.
The GI Bill has a time limit of 10 years:
You have 10 – 15 years to use your GI Bill benefits.
Once you have separated from the service you have 10 years to use all of your benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill and 15 years to use you Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits. Although separating from service “starts the clock” on your 10-year time limit, you should know that if you rejoin active-duty service for more than 90 days, during the 10- year period, your 10-year clock is reset. In other words, you get 10 years from your last discharge.
Without intervention at a federal level, there are no exceptions for this requirement.
