Update on GI Bill Transfer Rules For Purple Heart Recipients

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen,

Late yesterday the DoD announced that the Secretary of Defense, in coordination with the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, signed a policy that allows Wounded Warrior Purple Heart recipients to transfer unused Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits to their dependents regardless of the number of years they have served.  This change is effective August 31, 2018.

The Secretary’s policy memorandum is attached, and may also be found on the DoD Issuances webpage at this link:


Secretary Mattis has been clear that we must recognize the sacrifices these service members have made.  This policy reflects the Department’s continuing commitment to our Wounded Warriors and their families.

All other laws and DoD policies concerning the transferability of unused Post-9/11 educational benefits remain in effect.  

For your reference, I have attached a DoD news release announcing this update.  (When published later today, this news release may be found here:https://dod.defense.gov/News/News-Releases/)

As always, thank you for your support for our Service members, veterans and their families — especially our wounded warriors.  Please let me know if you have any questions about this change and I will ensure our subject matter experts provide answers.

Best wishes,

David L. Nokes
