The longest war in American history is drawing to a close. Now, the men and women who served are coming home, and many hope to use higher education to build new, better lives.

They have help from the Post-9/11 GI Bill, a piece of legislation that many advocates say offers more support to returning veterans than any policy since the original GI Bill of 1944.

In this documentary from American RadioWorks, explore how the first GI Bill revolutionized the lives of millions of young veterans, and how veterans today are returning to a very different reality than their predecessors.

This special is the third in a four-part education series from American RadioWorks. Revisit the first episode and the second episode.
