Georgia passed a law granting the widowed spouses the soldiers’ scholarship benefits.
“HB 131 — Surviving Spouse HERO Scholarship legislation passed unanimously in both the House and the Senate.” From the Loganville Tribune.
Illinois folks are having a 5K run for scholarships for the surviving children.
I wonder whether Texas has done anything like that? Our legislature only meets once every two years, so it may be too late for now, but I’ll see.
