The economy has left no stone unturned as it continues to ravage the lives of Americans. Veterans returning from war are no exception. But, there's help for the men and women in uniform who've risked it all for their country. From education to housing, the G.I. bill is still working regardless of downturns in the economy. "Guys that want to go to school, finish getting their degree so that they can get into the workforce, so they can earn a good living for themselves and for their family,” said Paul Fontenot a Veterans Service Officer in West Monroe. “That's a big help." If healthcare is a concern that's covered, too. The Federal Government has set aside billions of dollars to assist veterans returning from war. But of available benefits, healthcare is most taken advantage of most often. With the rising cost and cuts in Louisiana, it's no wonder why. "Us filing claims for those veterans gets them money immediately,” continued Fontenot. “So that they can adjust to adapting to their disabilities, whatever they maybe, and then getting into the workforce later on." The Veterans Administration even acts as a co-signer on home loans for returning vets. .
