3.E. CEASE NEW USMC ENROLLMENTS IN VOLUNTARY EDUCATION TUITION ASSISTANCE;
If you were wondering how it effects me, this is how. I can’t get money to get my masters (while I’m active duty; GI Bills are unaffected) and more importantly my Marines, all of whom aspire to earn an undergrad degree, can not get money to pay for classes. Some of them are currently taking classes online at night during our deployment and will not be able to continue next semester because of this cut that is recommended by the Honorable Ray Mabus, Secretary of the Navy, and only affects Marines.
USA Today is the only mainstream news source to pick this up.
