Have Three Years
To Start Gl Training!
Provision Made By New
Law Signed August 20
Os This Year
Post-Korea veterans now have three
years from the date of their discharge
to start Korea GI Bill training, under
a new Taw signed by the President
August 20, 1954.
Particularly benefited are the ma
jority of veterans discharged before
August 20, 1952. Under the old law,
they had to start training before Au
gust 20 of this year. But since most
fall school terms begin in September;
those unable to get in training before
that deadline would have lost their en
The new law. which re-established
their enlistment for another year trom
their, date of separation, permits those
with extended deadlines to enroll for
the fall term.
For veterans discharged after Au
gust 20, 1952, the new law allows
them to start training within three
years of their separation date. Under
the old law, they had only two years.
But veterans who were separated
before August 20. 1951 still will not
be able to make fall terms this year.
Neither will veterans separated short
ly after that date, whose three-year
deadlines end before the 1954 school
The new law also adds another year
to the wind-up of the Korean GI Bill
training program. Training now must
come to an end within eight years
from the date of a veteran’s separa
tion, or eight years from the end of
the present emergency period—which
ever comes first. It previously was:
seven years. i
Another section of the law bene
fits some disabled veterans who have
not been able to begin or complete
training under the special vocational
training pograrh for disabled veterans
of World War IT and post-Korea.
These veterans get a four-year ex- j
tension in. their deadline for complet
ing training, in certain cases. Vet
erans to whom the. extension applies
are: (IV Those whose severe disabili
ties have prevented them from enter
ing or completing training. (2) those
who originally received discharges bar-1
ring them from training, but whose]
discharges later j were changed too
late to permit them to enter and com-.
plete training. An other than dis
honorable discharge is a requirement
for this kind of vocational training.
