    Petition for reinstatement of military tuition assistance!!!


    This isn't a thread for debate or opinions on what you think.

    Military tuition assistance was suspended due to the sequester. Military members like myself were completely cut off from using tuition assistance to fund our education. There is a petition going around and I would appreciate if you would all take 3 minutes to sign and share the petition through whatever social media engine you use.

    Most of you are probably unaware due to zero to little media coverage whatsoever. The military needs your help now SIGN AND SHARE

    Do you have a link that describes the action in more detail. The link to sign has a small summary of what it's about but I need more info to pass on. Some of the guys want to know more of the details.

    Signed. I'll forward it to my buddies still at West Point and I'm sure it'll spread through the Corps. Pretty quickly; things like this usually do. Will also send to my buddies at various units/posts throughout to make what impact it can.

    Basically looking at 30 days and a wake up brother. 30 days and a wake up. Looking forward to spending some serious daddy/daughter time. She was 1 month old when I left and only spent about a week with her because of training. She'll be almost 9 months when I get back.

    If you all don't mind signing another petition.... The USCG receives educational funding through DHS instead of DOD. CG is an armed service and operates with and under DOD every day. I'd like to hit up some college classes so I can transfer my GI bill to my son.

    EDIT: It was just now approved. Disregard.
