This Week at American Veteran

This week at American Veteran, we will continue to follow the developing story behind the capture of Army Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl.

AMVETS faxed and mailed its letter to the chairman of Fox News, demanding an apology for the network's off-color remarks regarding the young soldier and the circumstances of his capture by the Taliban.

We will also continue to follow VA's implementation of the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill, which is set to roll out on Monday, August 3. AMVETS anticipates a smooth roll-out of the new benefits on the part of the VA, but it remains to be seen whether or not colleges and universities are adequately prepared.

We will also follow the final hearings on Capitol Hill in the House and Senate Committees on Veterans Affairs prior to the August recess.

AMVETS has also been following the current health care reform bill, as it moves through Congress. AMVETS raised some questions on potential "unforeseen consequences" of the current bill. American Veteran Online will continue to follow the story and keep you up to date on the responses AMVETS receives from each of the committees involved.

As always, American Veteran is eager to hear what you have to say about the stories we cover. We're also eager to see content from the field, which we can post on the blog and in the print edition of American Veteran magazine.

Finally, if you choose to post comments to the blog, we encourage you to either log on with a Google account, or leave your name at the bottom of an anonymous quote. This way, we can publish your thoughts in the print edition of American Veteran.
