  • because the army give a lot of benifits for the spouse, like child care, tax cuts, discounts on many stores, insurance, credit card interest rates, any loan interest rates, i could go on forever... but haven't heard anything about college funding???

  • Some bases offer spouses education assistance, but I think that it is only on overseas bases. Contact the Base Education Center and they can tell you what is available. When my husband was in the Air Force and we were stationed overseas the Air Force would pay for one class per semester.

  • i agree with the above & do you have a local college or community college? if you go talk to their counselors, they will direct you & often they offer on-line courses (my daughter took a math class online from our local community college) you might be surprise what the local colleges offer for online degrees as well & they often transfer or the classes are reconizable if you decide to actually attend classes. Check it out before you do anything off the net.

  • Also if you have an FRG group the leader should know where to direct you for your particular base
