Veteran moms, what are you doing with the new GI Bill housing stipend/living allowance?

Does it help much?

  • We get 2200 a month for the next 20 months when my husband will be finished with his Master's. That is 100 more than our mortgage payment. My husband can cut back on his hours at work and I can still stay home. We are very happy about this.

  • After looking at the 9/11 Bill and the regular GI Bill, my husband decided to stick with the regular GI bill while he finishes up his Associate's degree. Once he transfers to another college then he will use the 9/11 Bill. If he had of gone with it now, then he would have lost $2000 a year.
