Via James Funk
Alexander's insight:

My Thoughts are that employers should not discriminate against any service. Whether it is national guard, reserves, and active duty. No matter what it is that individual is providing himself to contribute to a service that helps defend this country and the community.

Alexander's insight:

My Thoughts are this country should not be cutting the military budget. The United States Military has been a world superpower for quite some time and the last thing we need is to cut the Military budget and lose that advantage. Due to these budget cuts the Navy is not where it used to be. Yes it does cost money to keep ships deployed at sea, but that is to essentially keep control and freedom of this country. U.S. Military soldiers, veterans, sailors, and aviators sign to defend our country and support it 100% therefore the military budget should not be cut so we can defend the freedom of this country and remain a world superpower.

If you have served your country in the United States military for any period of more than 90 days of active duty, you are eligible to receive some sort of education benefits for your service.

Via Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)
Alexander's insight:

My Thoughts are the G.I. Bill is one of the greatest benefits through the military. Some people do not want to go to college, but those who would like to go to college have the opportunity to have their tuitions covered. On top of the hands on training in the military. Aside from the sequester and the military budget cuts, the G.I. Bill will help military veterans get the schooling one would like.
