Old GI Bill still being pitched to new recruits.

The Associated Press reports that new U.S. military recruits “are being advised to continue signing up for the old GI Bill while details are being worked out about what types of education are covered” under the new 21st Century GI Bill. However, the old Montgomery GI Bill comes at a cost — a $1,200 contribution that can be paid in $100 monthly installments within the first year of service. The new GI Bill — originally sponsored by Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) — is free.
