After World War II, the G.I. Bill not only provided health care for returning veterans, but also jump-started the American middle-class. What are today's policies doing to help veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan? That's the focus of this episode of the Iowa Journal. Todd Mundt will talk about Iowa's veterans with Executive Director of the Iowa Department of Veterans Affairs, Patrick Palmersheim. We also visit Corning, Iowa, with Out and About correspondent Dan Kaercher and examine the state's headline news with Iowa Public Radio's Jeneane Beck. (27:47)
