Biden promotes GI Bill website

Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, is promoting a new website called the GI Bill Comparison Tool designed to make it easier for service members, veterans, their spouses and dependents to calculate their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits at thousands of schools and job training programs. "In just a couple easy steps they can figure everything out," she told The Associated Press Wednesday. She said using the website, service members can estimate tuition and fees, housing allowances and book stipends for each school.
