The Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee unanimously approved bipartisan legislation sponsored by Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose that would raise awareness of educational benefits available for veterans to attend college.

“Veterans are often deterred from higher education because they are unaware of how the Post-9/11 GI Bill greatly reduces the cost of college,” McHose, R-Sussex, Warren and Morris, said. “Veterans’ Education Awareness Week will remind us that we must do a better job of making sure our heroes take advantage of all of the benefits they have earned.”

Veterans’ Education Awareness Week would be the second full week in November, coinciding with Veterans Day to raise awareness of the Post-9/11 GI Bill and Operation College Promise (http://www.operationpromiseforservicemembers.com/), a website where New Jersey Veterans can find resources to help them maximize the education benefits they have earned.

The resolution, AJR-25, requests the Governor to issue a proclamation calling on public officials and citizens to observe the week with appropriate activities and programs.

“Helping veterans pay for college is an important part of our country’s heritage of assisting soldiers return to civilian life,” McHose said. “We owe it to our military members to make them aware of the resources that are available to them.”

Quote of the Day

Quote of the day

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop
