Dear Colleague,
I invite you to join me as an original cosponsor of the “Spouses of Heroes Education Act.” This legislation would expand educational benefits to the spouses of members of the Armed Services who make the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Many military spouses put their careers and educational plans on hold to support their family while a loved one is overseas. Our nation should provide for these families when they lose a husband, wife, or parent in combat.
The Spouses of Heroes Education Act amends the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill to expand the Fry Scholarship by making surviving spouses of members of the Armed Services eligible for this benefit program. This scholarship provides full in-state tuition, fees, a monthly living stipend and a book allowance to children of service members who have died in the line of duty. This change would allow spouses to receive the same benefits.
If you would like to be an original cosponsor, or have any questions, please contact David Rosenbaum in my office at 5-5965.
Sincerely,

Dina Titus
Member of Congress
