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

English, French, German, Dutch, Swedish, West Indian (mainly Haiti, also e.g. Saint Lucia), and African (mainly Nigeria and Tanzania): from the personal name Paul (from Latin Paulus ‘small’), which has always been popular in Christendom. It was the name adopted by the Pharisee Saul of Tarsus after his conversion to Christianity on the road to Damascus in about AD 34. He was a most energetic missionary to the Gentiles in the Roman Empire, and played a very significant role in establishing Christianity as a major world religion. The name was borne also by numerous other early Christian saints. It is also occasionally borne by Jews; the reasons for this are not clear. In North America, the English form of the surname has absorbed many cognates from other languages and their patronymics and other derivatives, e.g. Greek Pavlis , Slovenian Pavel and Pavlič (see Pavlic ), Polish Paweł (see Pawel ) and Pawlicki , Assyrian/Chaldean Polous and Polus . In France, this surname is most common in Brittany (see 2 below).

Breton (mainly Finistère): from a Frenchified form of the personal name Paol, Breton form of Paul .

Irish: shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Phóil ‘son of Paul’. Compare McFall .
