On June 22, we celebrate the anniversary of the G.I. Bill, a historic act that was the first major piece of legislation dealing with the postwar era challenges to come. With veterans coming home to already fully staffed factories, the G.I. Bill, officially known as the Service Member Readjustment Act of 1944, helped stop another recession by providing education and housing opportunities to veterans—allowing them to create new jobs and businesses in America’s new booming economy. However, the Jewish effort behind the G.I. Bill is little known to the public.
