Back to the real world...
Well, I finally did it

I have signed up for the third time, and I expect to take my first official college class this summer. They say the third time is a charm, so let's hope it all works out this time.

Somehow the army always gets in the way. I signed up for classes as a senior in high school. I then had to drop those classes because I was on my way to basic training. I signed up for classes again in April of 2006. I later had to drop them when I found out I was being deployed to Iraq.

So here we are, the third time around. I hope the army doesn't get in the way again.

In the meantime, I will be trying to figure out just how exactly I will pay for school since the Army has no education benefits for those who transfer to the IRR. Go figure. But, that is just a small bump in the road. I don't need the army. I'll figure it out on my own.

Hey just so you know, you have at least two avenues I can think of right off:
1) GI Bill. There is the Montgomery GI Bill for RC Components (I know I used it first enlistment). I dont remember if you have to contribute or not.

2) A lot of states have free in state tuition for Veterans and soldiers. Might be worth looking into.
