If you haven't heard, Rep. Chairman Phil Roe has sponsored a bill that will charge new recruits $100 per month for up to 2 years. So that when separated from the military the soldier can collect GI benefits.

 

These benefits have been more or less 'part of the agreement' since WW2 and if you include the Veterans administration since the Civil war.

 

You can't make this stuff up.....read this. Contact your reps raise hxll.

 

This is ridiculous, men and women putting their lives on the line to be nickel and dime-ed by some Axx hole politician!!!!

 

Call... write....raise hxll....pass it on.

I'm not as opposed to it as you are for this reason; if the recruit knows going in that this condition, this cost, exists, the recruit needs to use that in making his/her decision to serve.

I could be wrong but I believe this is the same quack who was out front of the DOA heath care repeal / replace effort.  And now he is sponsoring yet another DOA effort.

When I signed up for the GI Bill in 2005 it was $100 a month for 1 year. I can't even begin to express how worth it that was. I would gladly give them another $1200.

After they take this money, they will figure out a way not to pay it out when needed.

 

Just like pensions, mark my words.

Yes I totally agree that the recruit has to make an informed decision. That is provided the recruit is fully informed. As we have seen in a few cases recruiters are not necessarily forthcoming in the details of military life.

But what irks me most is with all the f'n flag waving and 'we got your backs' by the Reps to the military to pull this? SMDH

John you are either kidding or being sarcastic or a moron.

Which it is before I go on. I hope I am reading between the lines as to what you wrote is sarcasm.

Forty years ago, when I joined, there was less access to critical information and less means of verification. If an 18 year old is uninformed now, it is because they choose to be, typically thru indifference

 Yup I checked .... one in the same http://roe.house.gov...es/health-care/

 

My wife made a very astute observation and said Maybe I am wrong, but it sure seems an awful lot of jerk politicians come from the south. A keen observer of the social condition my wife. :D

 

I wonder... is it the water....too many cousins marrying cousins... what? But you have to admit now that we are in Trump-world they are crawling out of the woodwork just like the cockroaches they are.

To be honest Jimmy I wasn't aware of this 100 for a year thing. I was a child of the 70's. Was that strictly for Education? Is that in place now? Something else?

 

Sorry there aren't any young military to talk to in my circle.

 

Thanks!

As I said I am not arguing that point at all.

The same plan was in place from 1984 thru 2008. I didn't realize this until I started poking around the internets. It was called the Montgomery G.I. Bill. Named for the congressman who wrote it.

I know when I was in, there was no charge.
