The Military has a program called MyCAA, My Career Advancement Accounts, a program that gives qualified military spouses up to $6,000 in tuition assistance to help them pursue portable careers.
This is important because, in these times of War the Military spouse may become permanently disabled or killed at pretty much any moment. Having a program that assists the spouse in obtaining career enhancing education and skills seems like a no brainer. They may become the family's primary bread winner without warning. Assisting these families in preparation for a worst case scenario is a good use of taxpayer funds. With a government wasting hundreds of billions of dollars on every boondoggle and wasteful earmark imaginable, MyCAA funding should be among the last to be cut.
According to the articles I've read, DOD MyCAA officials are saying that the halt is temporary. http://www.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123192179
But some have found that they can't access the money in their accounts for classes already signed up for and approved. They've been told to "seek other funding sources".
Whatever is happening with MyCAA it is pretty obvious that the needs of military families are being treated with less respect than they deserve. Funding for these folks shouldn’t be an afterthought, subject to the whims of the military hating elites currently in charge of the government.
Yet another swipe at the men and women who keep this country free so they can be spit on by those unworthy to carry their water.
