IAVA, Veterans Education Wins at the Supreme Court

April 16, 2024

The Leading Voice of the Post-9/11 Generation of Veterans, IAVA Spoke Up in Support of Petitioner of Rudisill v. McDonough Last August

Washington, D.C. — Today, the Supreme Court ruled to protect earned veterans’ education benefits in a decisive 7-2 vote. Last year, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), the leading voice of the post-9/11 generation of veterans, submitted an amicus brief in support of the petitioner in Rudisill v. Mcdonough.

This decision allows veterans who qualify for both the Montgomery GI Bill and the post-9/11 GI Bill to access both benefits and ends previous restrictions that severely limited access to the post-9/11 GI Bill.

“Not only is the post-9/11 GI Bill foundational to IAVA, but it is a critical benefit for many veterans and servicemembers who volunteered to serve on behalf of our country,” said Allison Jaslow, CEO of IAVA. “Our country’s investment in our servicemembers and veterans is an investment in the future of America, and Rudisill shouldn’t have had to fight for the benefits he earned, but I’m glad to see that the Supreme Court stepped up in his favor. As the only national veterans organization that represents all volunteers, and as our military continues to struggle with recruitment, IAVA will continue to fight for and protect veterans’ education benefits.”
