The order also led to the establishment of an advisory committee for examination of the procedures, practices, and rules of the armed services, in addition to recommending ways for making desegregation a reality. Even though there was significant resistance to the executive order 9981 from the military, the order resulted in a decline in discrimination in the military (Allison, Grey and Valentine, 283). The order responded to complaints regarding discrimination across the United States against African Americans which made Africans Americans to be accepted into job-training programs in various defense plants, prohibiting discrimination by defense contractors and ensuring the establishment of a Fair Employment Practices
As World War II was winding down, it became evident, that the approximately 16 million soldiers returning home from war would require some type of benefits package to avoid a possible post-war depression on the home front. While this may not have been an immediate concern of the returning soldiers, congress took it upon themselves to create the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944, what many refer to as the GI Bill of Rights. On the 22nd of June 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the bill into law, which included 10 significant parts. The American Legion (2013) displays them as followed:
In 1993, the FMLA act, which serves the needs of families trying to balance work life and the needs of the families their working for, was established. This act was amended on October 8th, 2009 to extend entitlement rights of military caregivers.
Once reviewing the following policy, I have conducted that this policy wishes to give disabled veterans or their spouses, if they have passed away while on duty, a property tax relief. For a disable veteran to be qualified, the veteran must have been honorably discharged at the end of their military career, while also being determined having become permanently disabled. The Property Tax relief from what I have seen also has no age cap for the veterans or spouses who try to receive the Exclusion, which is good for the people applying so they are unable to be phased out by age. For the spouse to receive the benefit they must either be the spouse of a disabled veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran who has unfortunately died as a condition of service while in the line of duty. However this is one of my biggest problems with the Property Tax relief, it states that only spouses of deceased emergency personal officer are allowed to qualify for the Exclusion if they have not remarried. I understand this could seem that it is fair, however I do not consider it right to forbid someone to remarry especially after they have lived through the traumatic experience of losing their spouse. In this it appears as if they remarry, they are no longer truly connected to their former spouse, which for some could be farther from the truth. If someone had lost a person who they had loved and marry, I believe it is their right to claim this Exclusion even if they have become remarried. Yes, some

There were over 4.7 million American soldiers that fought in World War I. 116,000 died in on the battlefield and another 204,000 were wounded. In 1914, Congress passed the War Risk Insurance Act to insure American ships and their cargoes before the U.S. entered the war.
The scourge of sexual assault hangs over the reputation and combat effectiveness of the United States (U.S.) military. Marine Corps policy states that sexual assault is ?completely incompatible with our core values of honor, courage, and commitment.?[endnoteRef:1] Despite this stance and incremental legislative and recent administrative changes, an overzealous deference to traditional chain of command involvement continues to produce inadequate results. A perceived widespread culture of reprisal and ?circling the wagons? discourages
The Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, also known as the GI Bill of Rights, or GI Bill, made generous provisions to help send former soldiers to school after World War Two. This provision also helped avoid a problem that would have otherwise occurred. With fifteen million returning veterans at the war's end, the employment markets would be over saturated and highly unbalanced. The provisions that were distributed due to the bill helped send about eight million veterans to schools to further advance their education in the post-war decade, allowing time for the employment markets to more easily adjust. $16 billion was also allotted to the Veterans Administration (VA) to give out as loans to the returning GIs to help them buy homes, farms,

Such engagement immersed Mr. Hunt in veteran’s initiatives in alignment with the provisions of 38 U.S.C. 4215, which provides priority of service to veterans and eligible spouses in all Department of Labor-funded job 5 training programs. As Director of the National Center of Excellence, Mr. Hunt headed the team that designed, launched and administered a nationwide web-based training program used by the disabled to improve their skills in service related professions (e.g. customer service). This experience has not only driven a passion for workforce development and innovation, but also a desire to train the countless underserved populations such as the disabled. His compliance and employment expertise, which has evolved for more than three decades, truly makes him an invaluable component in the creation, strategizing, and management of workforce developing initiative, job centers and training particularly as they pertain to providing opportunities to veterans, socioeconomically disadvantaged and disabled populations.
