A Veteran's Tale

Shelley Roundtree served in Afghanistan, leaving the U.S. Army in 2013.

Because of IT problems subsequent to implementation of the Forever GI Bill, signed into law by President Donald Trump in 2017, for months hundreds of thousands of veterans have not received GI Bill benefits.


Roundtree must now choose between public transportation to class and food. Often, he goes to bed hungry. Says Roundtree, “I’m about to lose everything that I own and become homeless. I don’t want to be that veteran on the street begging for change because I haven’t received what I was promised.”

Someone…fix this.
