    When the new GI Bill kicks in Aug. 1, the government's best-known education program for veterans will get the biggest boost since its World War II-era creation. But the benefit is hardly the "Government Issue," one-size-fits-all standard the name implies.

    In fact, depending on where service members and veterans decide to attend college, they could receive a full ride, or very little.

    An Associated Press review of state-by-state benefits under the new bill shows huge discrepancies in the amount veterans can receive.

    Damned right it ain't right.

    College education should be free for every citizen who is qualified to get it.

    Even more so for any veteran.
