First of all, I would benefit from this bill being passed. I served for 20 years and I am a disabled veteran. Yet, I am going to say it is wrong. While I appreciate the efforts to enhance VA services, it is wrong to steal the benefits of future veterans in order to do so. Many of us traded our blood, sweat, and tears for these benefits. Some gave their lives for them. When a service member desires to transfer the benefits to their benefits, they are required to ensure that they have at least 4 years left to serve. For many, this means acquiring additional years of service and many are willing to do so. It is not right to still have that requirement, but to give less in return for that trade-off. Many service members would also not be able to afford a home without the VA benefit, and yet this bill effects that as well. To those of you that supported this bill, I hope you realize what you've done.

To Angela,

Angela, GI bill is being abused by the veterans, most of the money don't go towards education which was what the bill intended to do. That being said, the cuts are necessary, and they will be spent better elsewhere. I strongly support this bill.

I strongly support this for many reason although every bills have some flaws. I have seen veterans not utilizing the GI bill educational funding in right direction, let's give them a goal which this bill will do.
