El Paso Congressman Beto O’Rourke Helping U.S. Troops Go To College

Forced budget cuts, also known as sequestration, are affecting the college dreams of thousands of soldiers in the US Army.

The Department of Defense suspended its tuition assistance program, but El Paso Congressman Beto O’Rourke is trying to change that.

Soldiers who served their country in Iraq and Afghanistan were promised tuition assistance as one of the perks of military service, but that has been suspended.

Enter Congressman O’Rourke, and two of his colleagues in the US House of Representatives, who introduced a bill yesterday that would reinstate that funding for military tuition assistance through the 2013 fiscal year.

O’Rourke He said the bill is important for troops because as they return from Iraq and Afghanistan, our troops rely on tuition assistance programs to begin the transition back into civilian life.

He also said it wouldn’t be fair to “pull the rug out from under them” now that they need to earn an education and find good paying-jobs as they leave the Armed Services.

Thank you Congressman O’Rourke for championing the cause of our brave men and women in the US Armed Services who have worked so hard to keep us safe!
