This Week at American Veteran

This week at American Veteran, we will follow AMVETS National Commander Duane Miskulin and AMVETS National Service Foundation President Joe Piening to Reno, Nevada, as they honor AMVETS' partners with the Special Olympics.

This week is a district work period for members of Congress, so AMVETS National Legislative Department will be collecting itself for upcoming hearings--including those rescheduled as a result of the recent blizzards.

The winter issue of American Veteran also made its way to the printer on Friday, meaning the new issue should be available online later this week and should arrive in your mailboxes soon.

AMVETS continues to receive inquiries about the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill, with reports of veterans still waiting on payment for the spring. Fortunately, many veterans have received confirmation that their benefits have been processed and payments should be flowing throughout the month of February. Associated Press reported on the new G.I. Bill last week.

American Veteran will continue to follow the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill throughout the semester, along with dozens of other critical veterans' issues. Check back regularly for updates.
