    Angry Tuition Assistance & The Budget

    So, with all the impending craziness of budgetary cuts and what it entails, why hasn't TA been cut? Seriously, we have the GI/Post 9/11 Bill to pay for school once we're out, and we have less and less people on active duty, not to mention how ridiculous it is for people to take time away from work for school...

    Why hasn't the shit been cut? :smash

    Who knows actually.... The only service who actually tried to cut back was the Marine Corps. Then they got a huge backlash from it they had to reverse that decision.

    Think of the money we could save if we just got rid of them entirely.

    Ok, but then don't require a CCAF for MSgt and above.

    I don't recall paying a dime for CLEP or DANTES when I got my CCAF. I guess things have changed since 1995.

    Have mentioned many times that TA needs to go. We've got the GI Bill. People who talk about not needing a CCAF (which we don't) if we lost TA are misguided. Paying for it on your own is showing you are going above and beyond. It's like the difference of volunteering off duty vs on duty.

    Even if one could argue that TA should stay, there is NO WAY spouses TA can be justified. That should have been gone years ago (or never implemented).
