Finally...A GI Bill for the 21st Century?

- VFW's Commander-in-Chief, George Lisicki, met with President Bush in the Oval Office just days before the new GI Bill was overwhelmingly passed by the Senate. Though Lisicki used the opportunity to voice the VFW's strong support of the new GI Bill for the 21st century, the President is still threatening to veto it! We talk with George Lisicki about his sit-down with Bush and more.
- University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is one of many universitys across the nation taking great strides to help returning Iraq/Afghanistan veterans feel more at ease on campus. We'll speak with P.J. Kennedy, Director of Counseling Services and co-advisor to UW-Eau Claire's veteran's club on this increasingly important matter.
