The Subcommittee hears from Veterans Benefit Administration Director MG Robert M. Worley II USAF (Ret.), as well as leaders of veterans' organizations, including the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States and Student Veterans America.
Representatives from the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities, American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Indiana University and the University of Illinois also testify.
