Remember when the Army tried to lure
young males into joining up with promises of tuition benefits? Well, that clearly isn't working anymore as no one appreciates education. Maybe it's not that bad. Perhaps it's a result of young people smart enough to be thinking about higher education are defacto too smart to join the Army. In any event, this is the new angle.
As a separate irony, anyone (like me) that has actually had their own small business as a primary source of income can tell you how the very same government that regularly short changes the
heroes in uniform has also stacked the deck against small businesses. Or hey- maybe they can buy a home. If they can get a loan, like through the VA? Maybe? Those that survive their enlistment without armor, or you know- fresh water, can then come home and lose all their benefit money trying to start a small business or in the volatile housing market. Insult to injury.
