Sequestration Hits Army Tuition Assistance: Also Obama: Defense Veto Unless Vets Pay More For Health Care.Topics: Political News and commentaries
Obama has little if any use for they military, they are but ponds in the game he plays and few that observe him have a clue which side he is on.
Very few Americans that understood the Constitution along with the vast majority of the military would be overjoyed with this final act.
Obama: Defense Veto Unless Vets Pay More For Health Care.
Obama a being of dubious credentials is their commander-in thief. Never has an individual disgraced the Oval Office like it's current occupant.
As long as he is in office the world and our troops will be in an unsafe place.
As Tim Howell of Military.com reports:
Earlier this week the Marine Corps moved to halt tuition assistance for new enrollees in response to the sequestration. On Thursday, March 7, 2013, the Army announced they will also suspend all tuition assistance enrollments.Cross posted from We the People
The following message details the ArmyDue to the current fiscal challenges, the Secretary of the Army has approved the suspension of Tuition Assistance (TA) effective 1700 EST Friday, 8 Mar 13. The suspension applies to all components and will remain effect until the fiscal situation matures.
Effective 1700 EST 8 Mar 13, Soldiers will no longer be permitted to submit new requests for Tuition Assistance through the GoArmyEd portal. Soldiers currently enrolled and participating in courses approved for tuition assistance are not affected and will be allowed to complete current course(s) enrollment.
Soldiers can continue to access their GI Bill benefits, if applicable (either the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) or the Post 9/11 GI Bill), or use another funding sources (i.e. grants, scholarships, or Army National Guard Soldiers using state Tuition Assistance). Soldiers should be encouraged to contact their local education centers for additional information. Updated information will also be posted to www.goarmyed.com.
The Army understands the impacts of this decision and will re-assess as the fiscal situation matures.
Let your elected officials and DoD know how you feel about the decision to cut tuition assistance.
