He WAS using the tuition assistance program. Getting help paying for this degree. The plan was to use his GI Bill for his Master's and PHD.
But now... the government has decided his time spent being an American soldier both near and far away from home, completely devoted to his country, does not justify him getting assistance when it comes to his education and bettering his life after the Army.
This makes me so mad that I can hardly put it into words.
If you haven't heard about the sequester... you've been living under a rock. If you are associated with the military in any way, you've more than likely heard about the cuts coming our way. This is one of the results...
Please do me a favor and go sign this petition:
Reinstate Military Tuition Assistance and block the Armed Service Branches from any further suspension of TA.
By signing this petition you are taking a stand to help our military get their well deserved college educations. Helping them take care of their family after they've completed their service to this great country. And showing them that the American people have their back both home and abroad.
Don't let our armed forces feel like their sacrifices have gone unnoticed.
