Military Spouse Assistance Program Will Resume

A tuition-assistance program for military spouses has been reinstated by the Pentagon, that from U.S. Senator Kay Hagan.

WITN first reported on the termination of the Military Spouse Career Advancement program last week after a Marine wife contacted us with the problem.

Hagan says she's written Defense Secretary Robert Gates about the termination of the program while offers up to $6,000 in tuition grants to military spouses for college or career training. The program was shut down due to a surge in enrollments.

The MyCAA program will resume March 13th.

    Some military spouses watch soaps. Mine didn't. and I wish this had been in place when I was in the military- she does too. She watched the kids- while I went to War. You know- that thing that defends American freedoms and allows poeple to post the garbage so frequently touted as free speech. Our combined monthy income at that time was about $800.00. A benefit of 6 grand for education does not go very far. Every one here has a right to an opinion- and free speech. The consitiution does not however give anyone the right to being at all smart- or educated about it. They may not be heroes- at least they would not call themselves that--but in MY opinion- and right to free speeech- they far outweigh your right to waste oxygen and displace footatge.

    militarymom, you are nothing more than a flag waving cheerleader for your offspring. Don't chastize ANYONE for an opinion different than yours.

    TO Anonymous: I am not a spouse, but a parent of a "hero", not as you would say "so called hero" and am very disappointed that someone, an American, would say the things you said. Perhaps, you would like to switch places with the spouse--and go to school--so you can learn to spell. Another point: education is prevention. He or she can be better equipped to get a job, because military pay is not equivalent to civilian pay. If something happens to the "hero" and he or she is not able to support the family, then the educated spouse can get a job, hopefully that will prevent them from relying on public assistance. Better salary=more tax dollars back into society. Look at the big picture and be thankful that you are not sitting in Afghanistan away from your home, family, and computer.

    More government pork. These spouces of these so-called "heroes" should get off of the couch, quit watching the soaps, and get a job.

    There is great news for military spouses that we not yet approved and are currently not able to use the MyCAA program. Bryant & Stratton College Online, a 156 year old career college and leader in online associate's degrees, is offering spouses of active duty military a $6000 for those that qualify.
