DOD Suspends Education Program

Some military spouses in the east are realizing that what the Government gives, it can take away.

The Department of Defense suddenly suspended a popular education program last month, leaving military spouses with unpaid tuition and some with a delay in graduation.

The Department of Defense launched the Military Spouse Career Advancement Account, or MYCAA, last March as a way to give military spouses access to education and training for portable careers.

The program allotted up to 6,000 dollars for military spouses.

But the popularity of the program has caused funding to run out and two weeks ago the Government pulled the plug with no warning.

Officials with the education center at Camp Lejeune say DOD temporarily suspended the program to review that funds are being used as they are intended.
