Brandon Evans: Tuition cuts unfair

Unfair cuts

The Army has just suspended the college tuition assistance program for all soldiers. I know of many soldiers that have had to stop their college education since the funding has been stopped.

How is this fair? America’s finest are required to stop the pursuit of a higher education so that underachievers can collect their food stamps and wait to collect the next government check. We put our lives on the line year after year for this great nation, but as soon as the budget needs to be get cut we are the first to be thrown to the wayside.

Does anyone else see what is wrong with this picture?
