1938 · Electrification of Rural Kansas

Age 8

Power was supplied to rural Kansas, which had been hit hard by the depression, in March 1938. Many farmers could not afford the $5 hookups for electricity. As a result, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Rural Electrification Act which provided loans to farmers who wanted electricity. Brown County became the first to receive service.
1944 · The G.I Bill

Age 14

The G.I. Bill was a law that provided a range of benefits for returning World War II veterans that were on active duty during the war and weren't dishonorably discharged. The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation. By the mid-1950s, around 7.8 million veterans used the G.I. Bill education benefits.
