Soldiers to Citizens

The G.I. Bill and the Making of the Greatest Generation

Suzanne Mettler

Drawing on extensive interviews and surveys with hundreds of members of the "greatest generation," Suzanne Mettler finds that by treating veterans as first-class citizens and in granting advanced education, the G.I. Bill inspired them to become the active participants thanks to whom memberships in civic organizations soared and levels of political activity peaked.
