According to the VA website, each of the individual services will be able to set their own rules for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Congress has authorized the VA to pay tuition benefits to the veteran’s immediate family, but I believe that the services will use this as a retention tool. In other words, active duty military members will likely incur active service duty commitments in order to pay educational benefits to their children. Spouses of active duty members may be treated differently, so check back often. I’ll post any information as soon as it becomes available.
