Tuition Assistance gives military service members $4,500 per fiscal year to go to college. This covers about six college classes. Read more below. I need at least 100,000 signatures so we need to get this thing rolling. Help out if you can please.

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Not use educational benefits from the United States Armed Forces, I.E. Tuition Assistance, as a part of the budget cuts.
On March 8th 2013 the United States Army suspended it's Tuition Assitance program due to budget cuts. This happened without warning and is effecting over 200,000 Soldiers according to the Army Times. The Army isn't the only branch feeling the educational squeeze, others have or will be following suit. Education benefits for our service members should not be on the table. Please pass this petition on to fellow service members so our voices can be heard!

There are many potential areas of government spending in which to identify waste and implement a reduction in the amount wasted. Education for the men and women who proudly serve the U.S., in wars in which they do not particularly understand, is not and area of waste. For the time volunteered as soldier, with limits placed on their civil rights and liberties, there is little we can provide as compensation. Surely 6 college classes a year, and perhaps the ability to obtain a 4 year degree in 8 years, is not too much to give to these individuals -especially when compensation for their service is not evident in their earning statements.
