What Are Differences Between GI Bill And Forever GI Bill?

The original GI Bill was passed in 1944 and is one of the most impactful pieces of legislation Congress has ever approved. It gave veterans greater opportunities to attend college and buy homes.

Earlier this summer, the House unanimously passed the Forever GI Bill, an expansion of a post-9/11 GI Bill.

What are the differences? How important is the new GII Bill?

To learn more, I spoke with Edward Humes, author of the book "Over Here: How the GI Bill Transformed America."  We connected earlier via Skype.
