Age 17

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.

Name Meaning

French: diminutive of Rouille, apparently a nickname from Old French rouiller ‘roll the eyes in anger’. However, in medieval slang the term denoted a type of barrel or cask, and the surname may have arisen, perhaps as a nickname or a metonymic occupational name, from this sense. The surname Ross is associated with Rouillard, perhaps arising out of a confusion with rouille ‘rust’.
