This large influx of citizen soldiers was associated with several developments in veterans’ benefits policy. One of the basic principles of veterans’ compensation in the United States had always been the responsibility of the government to “mend any damage which it has inflicted as a result of calling a citizen from his usual occupation to serve with the colors” (Wolfe, 1918).

The Board was charged with placing the reeducated veteran in an occupation of choice. Vocational rehabilitation was subject to economic compulsion only if a veteran willfully refused to complete training; in this case, all or a portion of his compensation could be withheld by the Bureau of War Risk Insurance (Lakeman, 1918).
