GI Bill

Dear Fellow Veterans and Colleagues,
The President just signed into law the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2017, also known as the “Forever GI Bill,” named after the American Legion national commander who wrote the original GI Bill language in 1944. This legislation contains 34 new provisions, the vast majority of which will enhance or expand education benefits for Veterans, Servicemembers, Families and Survivors.

Most notably, Veterans who transitioned out of the military after January 1, 2013 will not be limited to the 15-year deadline to use their GI Btestimonialill benefits – hence the bill’s nickname, “Forever GI Bill.” This law also restores benefits to Veterans, who were impacted by school closures since 2015, and expands benefits for our reservists, surviving dependents, Purple Heart recipients, and provides many other improvements.

We see Congress’s overwhelming bipartisan support and the President’s signing as a major accomplishment for our nation’s Veterans. The original GI Bill has long been considered an enormous success by historians, politicians and economists for its impact on the post-war economy and capital investment in our “Greatest Generation.” The passage of this bill ensures that generations to come will continue to walk in that greatness.

As you can imagine, VA has a lot of work ahead of us in order to ensure successful implementation of this new law, and as we roll out each provision, we’ll keep you updated and informed on our progress.

Thank you all for your continued support of our nation’s Veterans, Servicemembers and their families.

Military-Civilian testimonial 8/1/17


I just wanted to send you a quick note to express my appreciation for all that you do for us combat veterans.  I continue to watch your posts and receive job opportunities with your name on them from some of my colleagues in the SOF world.  Thankfully, I have landed a position as President of a defense company.  Currently, we are not in the position to hire, but I will let you know if things change.  As hard as it is to admit, I am not in the optimal position as I am always looking for challenges. I am thankful nonetheless.  My military career and time in combat has left me with the idea that there is more out there.

If I can ever help you, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Thanks again for all that you do.

Thank You for Participating in Hire a Soldier

From the Headquarters United States Army Soldier for Life - Transition Assistance Program (SFL-TAP)

The past five weeks have been a wonderful experience for SFL-TAP and for the individuals involved in our Hire a Soldier Campaign.  We had so many employers, non-profits, partners, Soldiers, and SFL-TAP staff help make this event possible.

Your help did not go unnoticed!  Below are some of the stats from the campaign that I have so far:

1.  The online Twitter Chat reached almost 4 million Twitter followers in a single day.

2.  The hashtag our office created was trending nationally on Twitter during the day of the Twitter Chat.  This means that Twitter put it on the side-bar of the platform as a suggested hashtag to use/follow, depending on a user's interests and location.

3.  The campaign/hashtag, which originally started on Facebook and Twitter, moved to other platforms like LinkedIn and Instagram.  The word spread fast!

4.  SFL-TAP's main Facebook page saw an increase in reach by almost 200% and engagement by over 500% when compared with data from weeks prior to the campaign.

5.  Two of our Facebook Live videos reached over 20K people, with others ranging from over 11K to over 16K.  Most were watched over 4K times, with multiple viewed over 5K all the way up to over 9K.  These were big numbers for our small page of about 7,500 followers at the start of the campaign.

6.  SFL-TAP and the partners received national and international attention, being published in multiple media outlets during the course of the campaign.

I can't thank you enough for your advertising and marketing support, as well as your constant dedication to helping transitioning Soldiers find their next dream opportunity.

While the campaign may be "over," the mission to connect transitioning Soldiers with companies at your centers is just getting started.  The employers participating have been given your Facebook pages and website location information to continue outreach in your region.

Here's to many more successes in the future!
