The Issue

National Guard members have deployed under 12304b orders since 2012 for preplanned missions in support of combatant commands 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.
