Since I have been home from Afghanistan my life went down hill. I have been in a deep depression. I had high hopes of achieving so many things. I live in a 2 bedroom apartment with the father of my youngest. He was working and ended up fired because he was late. Him and his family blame me for everything. He sits around playing video games all day and night. I collect unemployment. I want to get the fuck out of here. We don't even have a car. His parents arr giving him a van and he just sits on taking care of the insurance so we can be mobile again.

Oh yes I am planning on leaving. I want to go to school for cosmetology. I don't know how to access funding for it. I plan on opening a salon and give soldiers free cuts. There is also other volenteer work I want to do. Do maybe door to door make overs once a month. Because sometimes ppl need that. I hate it here.

Cosmetology school offers financial aid just like any other trade school.
Search for what school you want to attend and they will tell you for to apply: )

Call the school and go in and talk to financial aid.

They usually have a veterans department that handles it. You just do fafsa (they will help you)

You will get E5 BAH while you attend too. Take that money to leave.

It's honestly really easy with the VA. the school does it almost entirely for you.

Honey I know. Depending on how long you were in and a few other factors, you will get bah and either post 9/11 or Montgomery gi bill.

(I vote 9/11)
My mr. Was in a few years. He gets 100% funding for 4 years, and bah at 100% at e5 level. He was never an e5.

My friend was in 18 months and a few days, and gets 70% tuition funding and 70% of e5 BAH.

the bah is based on the zipcode your school is in.

I only know about the Army and Marine Corps personally..

but I did a quick google, you may have funding available. BAH rules may be different based on service.

Best  you can do is call the VA Dept of Education and see if you can find out.
