WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln today continued her fight to give the nation's military reservists greater access to educational benefits that they have earned while serving overseas.
Lincoln testified today at a joint hearing of the House Armed Services and Veterans Affairs Subcommittees to discuss Montgomery G.I. Bill benefits for active-duty service members and the Selected Reserve. Lincoln received a special invitation to testify at the hearing because of her efforts to allow National Guardsmen and reservists to access their increased educational benefits in the same way that active military personnel do.
