The new GI bill went into effect in June of 2008. It retroactively covered anyone who had served on active duty since Sept 10 2001. Although if you had previously payed in you dont get your money back.

and this is what makes me mad, our troops work hard and they deserve so much more but yet they get stripped of their goods and continue to be threatened to have things removed.

My husband got an email today from our credit union ( mil/fed go through this credit union) and they offered "sequester loans" and that they will no longer accept requests for tuition reimbursement ( for mil only).

interesting to say the least...

It's sad but it was expected. Some cuts will be invisible to most. Others like this one or the TSA/air traffic controllers will become very visible within a month (by mid to late April). And it will only get worse as the year passes. I think they just passed a continuation resolution to have the same budget in 2014. So... this is the new normal. Just wait until the defense contractors start laying off and all those well paid jobs stop funding mortgages or local economies. Domino effect.

Who care who gets the blame? Our economy will go right down the drain. No win situation - at least not for people who work for a living.

Remember all those 'Elective Classes' college students were required to take. Stuff like '18th Century Art Appreciation.'

Those elective classes were designed to make student pay more tuition by staying in college taking courses they would never use in real life after graduation.

Let's be honest. When the Occupy Crowd protested that they couldn't repay their student loans, it's because elective Art Appreciation classes didn't help them get a job after graduation.

Hey, college basketball and football stars don't stay in college for four years any more.

It's time to trim the fat off the campuses, any way.
