jen3kids Posted September 27, 2012 Share Posted September 27, 2012 (edited) Joanne's thread was very timely for me - thanks! Older ds (grade 10) came home with a bunch of Army pamphlets from school. He's thinking he might want to take advantage of them paying for college. I have no experience with that at all. I don't know any military people (at least I don't think I do!) to ask, so I'm hoping you can help me out. What is the program? How does it work? What does he give/get? Any websites that explain it clearly without trying to sell it to me. He has no idea what he wants to do in the future, but thought this might be a possibility. The only thing he did say was that he thought having the Army pay for college would allow him to work while at college and not have to worry about saving money for college ('cause the Army would be taking care of it). Therefore, he'd have it all as spending money.... I'm thinking that would not be the case..... would it? Really, I cannot see him in any branch of the military, but he could surprise me. He is a pretty rules-oriented kind of guy, especially when they benefit him! ;) ETA: And, if you could explain enlisted vs officer for me and any other lingo too. I have no knowledge of the US military at all (maybe because I'm Canadian, but I don't know about their military either!)
