Remember when we told you that your yellow ribbon bumper magnets were worthless? Well, President Obama has officially unveiled a Yellow Ribbon that’s actually worth something — it’s not a magnet, though:
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, President Obama celebrated the beginning of implementation of the Post 9/11 GI Bill. This bill, through its Yellow Ribbon Programs and partnerships with colleges and universities throughout the nation, will provide our service members with the most generous educational benefits package since the original GI Bill of 1944.
Over 3,400 agreements were received from the 1,100 schools participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program. The Yellow Ribbon Program, a provision of the new Post-9/11 GI Bill, funds tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate.
All that’s missing? A fucking war with China so we can finally get universal higher education! For a list of Kentucky schools and their respective benefits, click here.
