The Vet Act of 2011, H.R. 3167, would allow veterans to start a new veteran-owned or service disabled veteran owned small business using their GI Bill Benefits. The Vet Act GI Bill provides an alternative career track for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who will not pursue a college degree under the Montgomery GI Bill or Post-9/11 GI Bill.
Introduced on October 13, 2011 by Congressman Jeff Fortenberry, this GI Bill is now supported by American Legion California, Federal Allies Institute, HirePatriots.com, National Guard Association of the United States, NaVOBA – National Veteran Owned Business Association, The Partnership With America, Veterans Business Institute, and the Vietnam Veterans of America.
