I didn't want to make this but I woke up and ours was closed.

I am on leave visiting my in-laws in Wisconsin.. This place is so ridiculously boring, I bought a 750 piece puzzle and put it together in just about 3 hours.. I need to go back to work.

Eh. It will be back after they pass a budget later this month. I am not worried about it. Just means I get a couple month vacation from school.

I really only need an associates with some extra classes and some certifications anyway.

Besides, people can always use their GI bill if they HAVE to finish a degree in the next 2 months. Anyone who uses this as an excuse to fall behind in classes is just trying to shift the blame to someone else.

I haven't heard about them, so I would assume they are still open.

base ed center would likely be a better resource.

so yesterday I did legs and then I was gonna run on a treadmill. I quit after a minute for fear of falling on my face. My quads are sore as hell this morning.

Well, you gotta go through the ed center anyway t sign up for them so either way you will get an answer.

Legs days are my favorite. It takes a few weeks of continuous leg work for your body to get used to it. I can work legs just about every day now an be pretty OK the next day.

On a side note: most of the people on my friends list that are complaining about TA are the ones who never took classes to begin with..

I can't even take classes for a long time, so none of this applies to me at the moment. But they really should fix it soon.


Leg days are nice. I wish I could work my upper body harder than I'm able to at the moment. As soon as I get to Shaw my first question will be when can I schedule a doctor's appointment for my shoulder.

Someone mentioned TriCare is getting changed as well. Have any of you heard anything about this? Now THAT will really hurt everyone.

I guess this is the best info I could find: http://www.armytimes.com/news/2012/1...egion-101812w/

Looks like it mostly affects retirees.

By cost you refer to how much is deducted out of our check each month, correct?

These budget cuts are probably going to go more retard and make people more angry. Hopefully this plays a part in to making people be more proactive and forcing government officials to be accountable for ****ing up our system, and keeping them in check.

To be honest I just don't know. It seems that the monthly payment went up about 20%. But it seems like that is only applicable to retirees.

I think gone are the days where the military gets to have a ridiculous budget, and all of these nice things we have enjoyed over the past 15 years or so will probably be dropping off.

Doesn't this repeat itself though? During war the economy boosts, post war it trickles down. Budgets get cut and the military downsizes. IIRC it happened after WWI, which led us to scramble and join WWII late, happened after that, ramped up for Korea and Vietnam, downsized again, revamped for the desert and here we are. We are the primary source of budget cuts when politicians need to cut spending, are we not?

By the way, I'm just trying to get a handle on the situation. Better to be informed than everyone else around who is saying ZOMG I ONLY WANTED COLLEGE **** THIS DURRRR.

Yeah. This is standard. As much as it sucks losing benefits and stuff, I think there need to be serious cuts in the defense budget. We have far greater threats right now than terrorism and pissed of guys with an inferiority complex.

Like Akruse said, there are plenty of places where they can cut down on useless spending. I think that it would take the higher ups too much time and thought process to actually do that, so they cut benefits to show the brass "hey! we did something!" and call it a day.

All the places they should cut money would be way more difficult than just making sweeping cuts to big programs like this.. So, yes. There is lots of fat in our budget, but it's more work for people to cut it.

Makes sense. Looks like what Shred said might be correct too, flying time will be cut which would lead to less maintenance. I'm fine with that. More gym time for me.

Lol if you think that less MX means more gym time. It means you're not gonna be proficient in your job, you're going to be doing more busy work, and you're going to get pencil whipped. But judging by your posts, you don't give a **** about your job anyway you just wanna go back to SERE.
