Veterans in College.
In 1946-47 colleges and universities across the nation witnessed an influx of World War II veterans. This was primarily due to the 1944 "G.I. Bill of Rights." This bill allowed any veteran to attend a higher educational institution of his choice with all financial burdens taken care of by the Federal government. As the original bill was extended or revised and new bills for the Korean and Vietnam veterans written, the results of the post-World War II experience were evaluated and considered. In 1969, the silver anniversary of the signing of the original bill, there were again a number of reviews and analyses written. This paper presents a review of the literature pertaining to the first "G.I. Bill" and subsequent bills as related to higher education, veterans, and the public interest. (Author/HS)
