I really truly meant to blog yesterday, but the world conspired against that happening. I must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed, because yesterday was a rough one.
I am sure that most of my military readers are aware that the Army decided to suspend tuition assistance as part of the budget cuts associated with the sequester. Well, since I am a military education counselor, this is pretty much my entire job. Yesterday our office was overflowing with soldiers trying to figure out how they are going to pay for classes. It was a bit of a stressful day. I am sincerely hoping that Congress will get its act together and pass some kind of budget so these across the board cuts don't have to be as extreme. I understand if tuition assistance needs to be a smaller pot of money, but this sudden cut off certainly makes life much harder for many soldiers.
If any of my readers have questions on how this affects them or their husbands, please let me know. I work on Fort Drum, but I am happy to help any soldier, anywhere in the world, with figuring out how to go to school.
