AG Miyares leads coalition in support of veterans’ benefits

Virginia’s Attorney General Jason Miyares led a bipartisan coalition of attorney generals from 40 states and DC in urging the Supreme Court to rule in favor of James Rudisill in Rudisill v. McDonough.

The attorney generals have declared the case a matter of protecting veterans’ rights and education benefits.

Rudisill is a Virginia resident and decorated Army veteran of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He received the Bronze Star, one of the military’s highest accolades, for his service.

Rudisill used the GI Bill to receive his undergraduate degree after his first tour.

Following his third tour, he was accepted to the Yale Divinity School where he planned to become a chaplain and return to the military.

The VA denied his request for educational benefits which has since been overturned in multiple courts before arriving at the Supreme Court.
