Congressman to visit university Thursday

May 27, 2009  

U.S. Rep. Charlie Wilson will be on the Athens campus this Thursday to discuss the educational benefits available through a new GI Bill.

Under the Webb-Mitchell GI Bill, which was signed into law at the end of June 2008 and will go into effect on Aug. 1, members of the military who have served on active duty since Sept. 11, 2001, are qualified to receive up to four academic years of education benefits.

Veterans and anyone interested in learning more about the bill are welcome to attend the event at 2:45 p.m. in the Amanda J. Cunningham Leadership Center, Baker University Center 366. Attendees of the informal gathering will have the opportunity to share personal stories and to ask Wilson questions.

Contact Jerri Dahler, a field representative for the congressman, at 740-376-0868 or jerri.dahler@mail.house.gov with any questions about the event. Details about how veterans can apply for the benefits are available on Wilson's Web site.
