On Wednesday, President OBama signed the Post-9/11 GI Bill into law. This bill will give stop-lossed troops back-pay for their service. Nearly 185,000 troops and veterans are affected by the bill, which will pay them an average of $5,000 each. Gold Star children, children of the fallen, are also affected by the bill which provides for their children's education.
If you are or know a veteran who was stop-lossed, register with IAVA, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, for alerts regarding the stop-loss back pay.
