The post 9/11 GI Bill has been recently updated with many changes. It has been expanded to include active service members of the national guard.
There are more, simplified tuition and fee rates for members and spouses of members attending a public institutions—like Lyndon State College. (There is a cap on tuition for members and family attending private institutions.) It includes a housing stipend for those members who are no longer on active duty as well as a stipend for books for active duty members.
