A Veteran earns GI Bill benefits under the Department of Defense resources while serving their country. When the Vet wants to “cash them in”, the funds will come from Veterans Affairs money.  The COE (to use GI Bill benefits) is in essence a permission slip to spend VA money to pay for benefits earned under DOD dollars.
