On This Day in American History
On June 22, 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs the G.I. Bill. The bill, a sweeping “New Deal” for veterans, gave returning World War II veterans access to unemployment compensation, low-interest home and business loans, and funding for education. When the bill expired in 1956, some 7.8 million veterans had accessed the bill’s education benefits. Today, veterans are still eligible for a variety of similar benefits under laws passed since the G.I. Bill.

Increasing numbers of cases of COVID-19 have forced the Australian state of Victoria to bring back tougher restrictions beginning Monday. New infections over the past two days have been at their highest for two months. A state of emergency has also been extended.

VIDEO: Seira Kiyono, a Thai-Japanese ballerina and a former actress in “The King & I” Broadway musical, says the COVID-19 outbreak in New York City has forced her to reinvent herself. With shows and live performances canceled, Kiyono is now teaching ballet online and picking up tap dance to retool herself for future auditions.
