Today, the President will be marking the implementation of the Post-9/11 GI Bill at an event at George Mason University. Staff Sergeant Jim Miller was asked to introduce the President because he is a beneficiary of the bill, which honors our veterans by providing them with comprehensive education benefits. On August 1st, the Department of Veterans Affairs began distributing tuition payments to schools participating in the program. Through the program, Staff Sergeant Miller will be attending classes at George Mason University in the fall. Head over to the OPE blog, where you can read Staff Sergeant Miller's personal story about his experience in the Marines, and what the GI Bill means to him.
