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

Scottish (of Norman origin): habitational name from Beuzeville in Seine Maritime, France, named with Old French Beuze (a personal name probably of Germanic origin) + ville ‘settlement’. The final element has been altered as a result of association with the common place name ending -well ‘spring’, ‘stream’.
