With 2009 right around the corner, colleges are already gearing up for new G.I. Bill for post 9-11 veterans. In 2007, the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs said more than 500,000 veterans used the current G-I Bill for education assistance.

The NEW G.I. Bill, going into affect in August of 2009, is said to have an improved package of educational benefits and more. Schools such as Tallahassee Community College say they are answering questions about the bill on a daily basis.

Delorise Robinson, with T.C.C.'s Veterans Affairs Department said, "The interest is there, but we don't have the full facts yet and until we get those facts in, the only thing we can tell them that it is coming and it is going to be a better bill than some of the G.I. bills that they're on now."
