To the Editor:
I read in the paper today (April 25) that soldiers giving their G.I. Bill to their spouse or kids would require four more years of service.
Well, that is a start.
In my opinion, it should be taken away from the kids and only allowed to be used by the soldier or spouse.
I’m tired of hearing my high school students tell me they don’t have to fill out scholarships, FAFSA, or do anything to contribute to their education because their parent is giving him/her the G.I. Bill to go to school.
They are not at any disadvantage because they move around. They don’t deserve it.
The soldier is fighting, or did fight, for our freedom, not the child.
Parents of all careers struggle to put their kids through college.
Why should the military child get a free ride and others don’t?
I’m sad to see it affecting the spouse, but not the dependent.
