However, time spent doesn't count toward educational benefits.
Since the BP oil spill began, nearly fifteen hundred National
Guardsmen have been deployed to the gulf region to clean up the crisis.
But many of these men and women in uniform are not receiving credit
toward educational benefits they have earned.
Right now, a bill is making its way through Congress with a key
provision that addresses this loophole. Sign the open letter below, and
tell Congress: Don't make our troops pay for BP's mess. Stop hurting national security, and start paying for National Guard GI Bill benefits.
Hey, please stand up, check out that link, sign the petition.
