The effects of COVID-19 continue to affect us all. Through it all, VA has been working with Congress to preserve GI Bill® benefits for those impacted. This included the Student Veteran Coronavirus Response Act of 2020, allowing VA to pay education benefits and Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) payments to GI Bill students at the resident rate when their programs are converted from in-person to online learning solely due to COVID-19. The provisions were originally set to expire December 2020. However, they have since been extended until December 2021.Here are 4 steps that you can take to help you succeed during these extraordinary times.

Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
