 GI tract symptoms in diabetes
GI tract symptoms are very common in individuals with diabetes, and many health care workers in clinical practice feel that it is the autonomic neurologic complications that contribute to this.
The authors conclude that the prevalence of most GI tract symptoms in people with diabetes as evaluated in the community (and not in a hospital-type setting) is similar to that of age- and sex-matched controls except for the two above-mentioned conditions.
This is not seen in the general, community-based diabetic population, Thus, the presence of GI tract symptoms in diabetes is usually not associated with autonomic symptoms.

 Johnson Works to Expand Access to Montgomery GI Bill
The Montgomery GI Bill was implemented a year later in 1985 and allowed individuals already enrolled in VEAP accounts to transfer their benefits to the new MGIB in 1996.

Top Up is a really good deal because your total GI Bill education benefit is reduced only by the actual amount used to pay the difference between the total tuition cost and the amount paid for with Tuition Assistance.
The buy-up program allows anyone who is participating in the Montgomery GI Bill program to contribute up to $600 (in increments as small as $20 per pay period) at any time before leaving active duty.
Even if you don't plan to use your GI Bill education benefit right away, submit the applicable forms early so when you do want to file a claim to start withdrawing money from your account you won't have to wait more than a week or so.

 'The GI Bill Experience at NC State' Exhibition - NCSU Libraries, 2004
In the all-volunteer military, the GI Bill has operated in a way similar to civilian retirement programs: service personnel contribute part of their pay, which is matched several times over by the government.
Estimates are that some 450,000 engineers, 240,000 accountants, 238,000 teachers, and 91,000 scientists advanced their education under the first GI Bill, as did thousands of lawyers, doctors, dentists, journalists, members of the clergy, corporate executives, skilled crafts workers and technical specialists.
From the perspective of six decades, the legacy of the GI Bill transcends specific issues of veterans benefits–encompassing two general principles about the relationship between citizens and government in a democratic society.
