Statement by VA Secretary David J. Shulkin – Passage of the Forever GI Bill

Congress has spoken with a strong voice in support of our Veterans this afternoon. The Forever GI Bill expands the success our Veterans have had with the GI Bill providing opportunities that otherwise would not be possible.

In particular, it restores benefits to Veterans who were impacted by school closures since 2015 and has special benefits for our reservists, surviving dependents, and Purple Heart recipients. This nation is stronger when our Veterans are studying and working next to their civilian counterparts. Passage of this bill is a win for Veterans and their families.
