- Wedding: July 2015
I’m extremely new to this and usually check wedding bees out for all sorts of information for the planning of our wedding. I have definitely received majority of my information from all of you bees so a big THANK YOU for that. However i have a question about the educational benefits in the military. I would post this on some of those military spouse websites but the ones I have been reading…..well in some of the responses people are just plain RUDE. They’re extremely mean and non-helpful. it makes me think why they even responded to the questions to begin with. Anyway, i decided to post this and see if some of you fellow military spouses can help me figure this out.
My husband is in the Navy and when he and I got married (civil-our “wedding” will be in 2014! yayy) i was in college but then we moved and i was unable to finish. Now I’m looking to finish, i have maybe 1 1/2 years to 2 max to finish my BA and was going to use my husbands GI Bill. Here’s the issue, my husband is also planning on going to Dental School next year. My question is if I use some of his GI bill now can he still use tuition assistance when he goes to dental school and if it doesn’t cover use the remainder of the GI bill? I was told that tuition assistance will cover everything since he is active duty right now. I want to finish my degree but i don’t want to put a damper on him going to dental school since he REALLY wants to be a dentist and in a way, its HIS GI bill, he’s the one that worked for it. Is there a way that he can still go to school and I am able to get the remainder of my semesters done as well since i don’t have to do a full 4 years?
Btw, he has been serving for 7 years and yes his contract extends thru 2017. Sorry for it being so long, this will really help me a lot! Thank you so much.
