West Virginia joins Bipartisan Coalition urging U.S. Supreme Court to protect Veterans’ rights

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has joined a bipartisan coalition of 40 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands in urging U.S. Supreme Court to allow a three-time veteran the full set of education benefits the Montgomery and Post-9/11 GI Bills allow.

The coalition argues that a veteran who has served multiple periods of qualifying service under the Montgomery GI Bill and the Post-9/11 GI Bill is entitled to receive a total of 48 months of education benefits- without first exhausting the Montgomery benefit in order to obtain the most generous post-9/11 benefit.

“Our veterans, our nation’s heroes, should not have to fight for benefits the country they have honorably served promised them,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “We send them to fight our wars and I’m so proud of our laws that honor their service when they get back home.”
