The Veterans Adjustment Act is signed into law as a benefits package for those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces during the Korean War. The 52-20 benefit offered in The American Legion-drafted Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944 is reduced to $26 for 26 weeks, rather than $20 a week for 52 weeks, as provided to World War II veterans. Funds are also no longer dispersed directly to institutions but are paid to individual veterans at a flat rate of $110 per month, to cover tuition, fees, books and living expenses while they are at college.
