Following in the footsteps of the Navy, the Army has decided to suspend their Tuition Assistance Program – you know out of all of the things the Army could do to save money, enlisted soldiers’ career progression is what they decide to cut. From the Washington Times;
The move will suspend financial assistance for soldiers who take classes in their off-duty time after work and on the weekends.
“This suspension is necessary given the significant budget execution challenges caused by the combined effects of a possible year-long continuing resolution and sequestration,” said an official Army statement Friday.
Yeah, it’s “necessary” to suspend career enhancement, because there too many idiot sergeant majors sucking up the oxygen at the top tiers. What sergeant major decided to keep quiet when asked he was asked his opinion about this? Where is SMA Ray Chandler, waving his arms and telling the ACoS to get his head out of his ass? Morrell and Gates wouldn’t have stood for this bullshit.
