Braley is on a week-long tour and Wednesday it brought him to Iowa State University. There he met with veteran and Cyclone football player Tom Hall.

Hall says the post 9/11 GI Bill and its benefits are getting him through his education.

Braley is talking with veterans to find out any problems they’re having.

“I’m doing a lot of listening and being here at my alma matter Iowa State talking to veterans who are students here is one way to inform me of what’s important on the standpoint of good public policy,” Rep. Brailey said.

After five years in the US Army Rangers, Hall is now a business major.
