post #5026 of 5465

I've been to Arlington multiple times because my grandfather is buried there.  That looks to be a section for career soldiers based on the dates.  That isn't the Vietnam Memorial or anything.  They bury people in section based on when they die, so while there could be a few who died in Afghanistan or Iraq or something, most of them are going to be career folks who died with 20 years of service.

In response to my own comment.  Who thinks, when they sign up for the military (whether it is to get the GI bill or loan forgiveness or whatever) that it is "free."  I know I didn't.

I think the point is more like "people shouldn't have to join the military to pay for college," but they did a really horrible job of it.

Yes, I know what they're going for.

But you don't have to join the military to get a degree. You can just take out loans and then move to Germany after graduation.

Wasn't there an article posted here (maybe in another thread?) about a bunch of kids who fled the country to dodge their debt? It was the most Millennial group of people I've ever seen.

I served 4 years ,13 months of which were in a war zone and never even knew there was such a thing as a GI Bill. I thought you just did your job and when you got out people said "fuck you very much now move along asshole your blocking the door". I do admit though once I found out I squeezed it for every dime I had coming

Yes.  It was a profile of like 5 people who fled to Berlin.

They should be careful.  Apparently people are getting arrested now for defaultin (well not really when you get to the truth): https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/get-there/the-real-news-us-marshals-dont-go-around-chasing-loan-defaulters/2016/02/19/6089f006-d508-11e5-b195-2e29a4e13425_story.html

Unless you're in Utah. Yes, it was over ignoring a bench warrant, but it all stemmed from an unpaid ambulance bill.

Eh, "all stemmed" may be literally true, but if you don't show up for your court dates and ignore a bench warrant, you're a fuck-up at best and should expect to be arrested at any point. That's what a warrant means.

I thought bench warrants were optional like paying taxes or voting.

Somewhere in between that and obeying an order given by a cop during a traffic stop.

I thought bench warrants meant that the cop could take you in, but then you just sat on a bench, like a time-out, instead of getting thrown in a cell.
