G.I. Bill of Rights

G.I. Bill of Rights, Serviceman's Readjustment Act of 1944, which provided government aid for demobilized members of the U.S. armed services after World War II. Designed to prevent a repetition of the social problems that had followed World War I, it provided financial aid for the purchase of houses, farms, and businesses, and funds for veterans' hospitals, unemployment benefits, and vocational training. Most significant was the educational aid, which paid for 4 years of college education, including basic living expenses. Veterans of the Korean and Vietnam wars also received benefits.
