37. 'incentives for people to become career military people' BS - have to stay in longer
Edited on Tue Jul-08-08 09:31 PM by 1Hippiechick
to earn the benefit, if I understand it correctly. It benefits the military machine, not the soldier. (1) soldiers will have to stay in longer to collect the benefit; (2) the longer soldiers are enlisted, the longer they are in combat, the longer they are in combat...you get the picture.

Unless I have totally misunderstood the amendment to the GI bill.

Edited to add: K&R!
