The Montgomery and Post-9/11 GI Bills: Which One is Right for You?

After World War II, Congress saw a chance to help returning veterans. With millions coming back from the war without jobs, along with the still vivid memories of the Great Depression, Congress knew offering a way to help soldiers attend school was about more than just helping veterans--it could help prevent another collapse of the economy.

While most in Congress were in agreement about the education assistance and home loan guarantee portion of the GI Bill, they disagreed on the unemployment provision. In the end, the Bill passed intact and President Roosevelt signed the first veterans' GI Bill into law on June 22, 1944. As a result, millions jumped at the chance to attend a GI Bill college and get an education. By 1947, 49 percent of college students were veterans.
