They choose to aid countries and be "The World's Heroes" rather than helping us right at home. They choose greed (congressman) increasing their pay rather than helping others. The U.S. has it's priorities wrong and needs a new leader. All branches of the US Military have now been stripped of Tuition Assistance and millions of "warriors" future for success has been forced to a halt. ... Thank you dear government and thank you Obama.

I know there are several topics regarding the matter but I thought you guys would like to see a direct email from Uncle Sam Air Force edition. I am in the military in the air force and enlisted for not just it's benefits but to serve my country as well only to be threatened every year to have something taken away from me such as a pay reduction to us underpaid warriors.
Tuition Assistance is what kept military members in line striving for success in the future after enduring hardship and sacrifice. The least that could have been done was give a warning such as "Next semester TA will be cut off" but instead they chose to sweep everything under the rug at the last minute leaving thousands unprepared, men and women.

With that I give you the email. The header removed. Thank you dear government and thank you Obama.

There are so many wrong/backward things going on. The World is upside down! It is always the Military active and retired that gets threatened or cut. Or Social Security. I think we need to quit sending money all over the World. It is PAST time to take care of the USA.

Do you think they want veterans in our institutions of future power calling BS on all the global grab? Cut the tuition... If we could find men and women smart enough we could devise a plan to assist them in place of the illegal government.

I sure hope they leave the MGIB alone. I don't understand why they always go after the enlisted guy's wallet first..

this is part of the democrats plan to get even with the GOP .
since many service men vote republican and the democrats can try to blame the GOP its one of the many things the democrats can do to hurt the GOP.
No mater what the democrats say they still hate the military and have since the Vietnam war.
it can be seen by there acts and words.
If anyone in the military or a veteran thinks the democrats are on there side think again.
You can also check on military equipment to protect the guys in combat. The democrats have cut or done away with new equipment and research into new equipment that our troops may need in the future.
They are even robbing the military of armored trucks to supply Homeland security. gun grab??????.

Seen this coming for a while now. Next cut will be no more free medical coverage for active duty families. They'll raise copayments and not allow dependents to be seen on base. Maybe even scrap tricare and rely on champus. Active duty retirement will be given at 57 years of age and not upon retirement.
TA cuts are the tip of the iceberg.... Even if they get the budget situated, DoD wreck less spending will cause the above to come true.
For those of you out there that think no TA is a reason to not reup...good. The military needs people who actually want to serve. Go ask a policeman on how much TA he gets now, then ask him how much bah he gets, now ask how much bas, and ask him if how much more he gets paid for getting shot at.
TA loss? TA was a burden to the tax payers. Time to start spending wisely for our country's future and stop thinking about ourselves.
Stop thinking about being entitled to stuff.edit on 13-3-2013 by ChuckNasty because: added loss after ta and questionmark.
Because you are ENTITLED to be reimbursed.

Her command also informed her that we may not get reimbursed at all.
Needless to say we are not too happy about it.
