A recurring point of discussion during the presidential election was improving the treatment of veterans in the United States. Lots of promises were made on both sides, and Americans wondered if any real change would happen. On August 16, when Trump signed into law what is known as the Forever GI Bill, that change seemed to come.
The GI Bill has been updated many times since its creation in 1944, during World War II. Its original purpose has remained the same—to help veterans pay for college and training.
