Post–9/11 G.I. Bill Benefits under 12304b Orders

THE ISSUE
National Guard members have deployed under 12304b orders since 2012 for preplanned missions in support of combatant command,s but, unlike other overseas mobilizations, were not provided Post–9/11 G.I. Bill benefits.

THE FIX

  • Post–9/11 G.I. Bill benefit accrual for National Guard members under 12304b orders was authorized by the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2017.
