overwhelming) please email me any information. Thank you for reading this

My daughter is 17 graduates this year, her father died Oct 2007, his
education benefit he never used all of it only a small portion can it be
transferred to his children to use? I was told it had to be transferred and
it had a 10yr window. He cancelled the SSI because we had insurance with
the companies we worked for back then and when he passed he had no life
insurance leaving nothing. I hope VA can help in assisting with the college
benefit that was never used by their dad.

My father served in WWII (Japan), Korea, Operation Redwing and Vietnam. He
only used a partial amount of his MGIB benefits after retiring from the
USAF in 1970. I remember him saying that he wanted to go back to college
and take a few courses before his benefits ran out, but he never got around
to it. He died in 1994 with Gi Bill benefits remaining. With the the Post
9/11 bill underway, did anything change for soldiers and marines who served
previous to 9/11. Are his benefits totally expired so that they cannot be
transferred to me or my siblings?

job in the DOD is paying for. He has the GI Bill and has not touched one
cent of it. My father retired in 2002, it has only been 7 years since his
retirement. My father will like to transfer his GI bill to me but according
to the 9-11 he can not is there any other way he can transfer the GI bill
to me, we planed all 4 years of my college around the GI bill. I do not see
how this is fair. What about the Veterans? What about the people who put
their lives on the line for this country? and invested in the GI bill? What
happens to their money? Can someone please inform me better on this issue.

My service Date was 02/1977-02/1980.I used GI Bill for a couple classes at
community college. Do I still have my benefit's? I was told you had to use
them with in 10 years.Then I heard they were going to lift that time
limit.I don,t understand why there is a time limit on this.I am 54 and need
to change career's and would like to use these benefit's now.There should
be no time limit on benefit's earned by Veterans.And I also think the VA
Hospitals should closed and a Medical card issued to all Veterans so they
can go to any Hospital/Doctor/Pharmacy they want fully paid for.People who
never served should take a tour of a VA Hospital. The care and facility
provided is disgusting. I have seen better in 3RD world countries. It would
be cheaper for the Tax Payers to abolish the VA Hospital System and issue
Medical Cards.The American People should be ashamed of themselves the way
our Veterans/Prior Service people are treated.

Ms B. Brown
If you have guardianship, I would suggest that you first take the document
to a local child support agency to have an order drawn up. Then, you can
have their lawyers present the document to DFAS-Clevland(Army's pay
system). Once they validate the document, they will immediately begin an
allotment to garnish the funds from his wages. If DFAS starts the
allotment, he cannot stop it. As long as he is on Active Duty, he should
also enroll her in DEERS which will entitle her to an ID card and give her
access to medical/dental care at gov't expense. To get the full
explanation, you could call the ID cards section of any military
installation or seek the services of a lawyer who has knowledge of military
policies/procedures. Hope this helps.

I"m planning on going to college soon, I"m 23yrs old...my father was in
and out of Iraq he just retired.He said the GI Bill was transferable how do
we set this up for spring semester and what exactly does it help pay for?
Thank you so much!

If your question is directly related to the GI Bill, as I understand it,
the service member has to specifically give up their stake in the GI Bill
and transfer their benefits to their children, in addition to having served
ten years. I think this must be active duty. If he qualifies, and is
willing to give up his GI Bill benefits to his kids he has to contact VA.
He'll have 15 years from when he leaves active duty for the benefits to be
used (how it exactly works for the reserves I have no idea).
My heart goes out to you. My husband is on his third tour to Iraq. We are
pretty excited about this new allowance to transfer GI Bill benefits to
