 Interesting. I wonder if this is just for the AF? Showed this to Dh and he said he always had to approve tuition assistance for the Marines that came in requesting it.

My husband is in the AF and he said it was always the rule for certain ranks to get permission. It was just never really enforced until now.

I'm taking this as this just applies to Active Duty Air Force at the moment correct?

My dh is using his post 9/11 gi bill now with no problem. He is only reserves. He actually just signed up with a VA approved trucking school today.

TA and gi bill are 2 different. I think (could be wrong) that TA is for active duty. I know in the Army times they had posted new rules to change for the new fiscal year. Like you havw to have served for at least a year before you can use it. There were others but i forgot what

Well that's good to know that they are two different things. I would have asked hubby about it but I read this at 3am and hubby was asleep and would have been pissed if I had woken him up to ask. Hell, I was pissed I was up at 3am but I had a headache that was makingmy ears pound...

Interesting.  My husband used TA long ago...like 10 years ago...in the Navy and he had to get approval through his command for it.  I like that they won't approve it for those with substandard preformance.  If they are having trouble passing a fitness test, adding more to their plate is going to hinder them PTing more.
