The US Marines have had their Tuition Assistance cut due to sequestration. Other service branches at this time are going to continue TA. There are funds to pay for our Marines’ Tuition Assistance, and I have an example below of where $300 million can be found right now for this funding. Don’t send $300 million to Afghanistan for Afghan women: use it for US Marines for their Tuition Assistance right now.

The end of the week comes for most Americans on a M-F schedule, and they face a weekend of relaxation, college basketball, NASCAR races, eating out, and enjoying the fruits of their work and freedom. Meanwhile, US troops are packing up equipment and closing bases in Afghanistan as quickly to leave Afghanistan by 31 December 2014. I hope the packing is complete before then and the US troops can come home before then, and bring our money with them.

1.) US taxpayers to fund $300 million to go to women of Afghanistan. I am asking Congress and our Senate to STOP this funding NOW. This money needs to go toward US active duty Marines whose Tuition Assistance is being cut. The President could step in with an executive order NOW! This $300 million needs to go to the US Marine Corps to fund tuition assistance. Link:
