VA Expands Benefits to Select Group Exposed to Agent Orange
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has published a new regulation that expands eligibility for some benefits for a select group of Air Force and Air Force Reserve veterans who were exposed to the herbicide Agent Orange through regular and repeated contact with contaminated C-123 aircraft that had been used in Vietnam as part of Operation Ranch Hand. This regulation is an interim final rule so VA can immediately begin providing benefits to eligible Airmen who submit a disability compensation claim for any of the 14 medical conditions that have been determined by officials to be related to exposure to Agent Orange.

For more on veteran benefits, visit the Military.com Benefits Center.

HIGHER EDUCATION RESOURCES FOR VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES
There is a new online guidebook dedicated to helping veterans continue their education.  "Higher Education Resources for Veterans and Their Families" walks veterans through some of the biggest challenges they'll face when returning to school after service.  This includes, but is not limited to, the GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program, preparing for academic success, fitting in socially, working with VSO's, and coping with PTSD and other medical issues on campus.

The free 20-page guide includes detailed research by Ron Kness, a 36-year military veteran and expert in the service-to-school transition.  The guide also has more than 150 resources with links to (and short explanations of) each.

NEW GI BILL COMPARISON TOOL AVAILABLE FOR VETS

The Department of Veterans Affairs has launched a new online tool that allows GI Bill beneficiaries to find out more about their benefits and compare the schools and programs available to them. Find out more: http://department-of-veterans-affairs.github.io/gi-bill-comparison-tool/. The Workforce Board is one of two state approving agencies that evaluates and approves education programs for veterans and those receiving GI Bill benefits.
