Representative Scott Holcomb was invited to Fort Stewart by the White House to watch President Obama sign an Executive Order to stop deceptive and misleading practices by educational institutions that target veterans, service members and their families.

Both President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were in attendance at the event on Friday, April 27. The Executive Order being signed by the President will help ensure all of America's service members, veterans, spouses and other family members have the information they need to make informed educational decisions.

"As an Army veteran who began my active duty service with the 3rd Infantry Division fourteen years ago this month, I was very proud to return to Fort Stewart to meet with the President and First Lady," said Rep. Holcomb. "They have an enduring and unwavering commitment to our soldiers, veterans and their family members. I sincerely appreciate all that they do for our fighting forces."

Since the Post-9/11 GI Bill became law, there have been several reports of targeting of veterans, service members and their families by educational institutions that fail to provide quality education.
