This Week at American Veteran

This week at American Veteran, we will follow up with Congressmen John Boccieri, Mike Coffman and Duncan Hunter, each of whom was featured in the spring issue of American Veteran. The three newest Iraq veterans elected to Congress have kept busy since we had an opportunity to sit down with each of them shortly after taking office. American Veteran will highlight some of the key veterans' issues each congressman has sought to address early in their term.

We will also launch the first Battle Stripes story, highlighting the Army's 1st Infantry Division, the oldest continually active unit in the U.S. military.

We will also follow developments on Capitol Hill as AMVETS pushes to fund last summer's provision in the Higher Ed bill to commission student-veterans' centers on college campuses nationwide.

As a reminder, the VA continutes to accept applications for Post-9/11 G.I. Bill benefits (Chapter 33), and the Department of Defense has published the criteria for transferability of Chapter 33 benefits. Check out last Friday's post for futher details.

By now, all copies of the spring issue of American Veteran magazine should have reached your mailboxes. Please let us know what you think of the latest issue by posting your comments to this blog.
