Generally, each time Congress passed a new law authorizing and creating a new veteran benefit, they included eligibility requirements, for example the Post-9/11 G.I. educational benefits….

This makes sense, of course, when one realizes how important that time was for the world as well as the individual. Despite some hiccups, 2005’s straight-to-DVD “Saints and Soldiers” does a good job at showing both of these,…
