Library of Congress: Veterans History Project Launches New Online Exhibit on the GI Bill. “The Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944, signed into law on June 22, 1944, and colloquially known as the GI Bill, was a landmark piece of legislation that offered educational benefits, low-cost mortgages, low-interest business loans and unemployment benefits to returning World War II veterans. In the 75 years since its passage, the transformative potential of the GI Bill has continued, as it has provided economic and educational opportunities to generations of veterans.”
