    • Governor Haslam Proclaims Student Veterans Week

      Friday, September 22, 2017| 5:40pm

      NASHVILLE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Department of Veterans Services Commissioner Many-Bears Grinder today announced September 24-30 as Student Veterans Week for their contributions to enrich campuses statewide.

      In 1944, just weeks after the D-Day invasion, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed into law the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act, commonly known as the GI Bill which provides veterans with access to education, employment and housing opportunities. 

      In 1988, a study conducted by the Congressional Sub-Committee on Education found the GI Bill had a return on investment in the United States economy of seven dollars for every dollar invested and 40 percent of those veterans took advantage of this benefit that would not otherwise be able to attend college. 

      In 2015, Tennessee veterans used $265,299,000 in educational benefits at campuses across the state.
