Army Education Courses Give More College Credit!

The American Council on Education has completed their latest assessment of the Army's noncommissioned officer education courses, and has increased the recommended number of credits awarded for completing many of the courses.

These increased credits will help every enlisted soldier once they graduate from AIT. Taking all of the common-core courses, from Structured Self-Development 1 all the way up to the Sergeants Major course, can earn a soldier a total of 61 credits - about as much as two years of college. MOS-specific courses can help add to the number of credits earned as well.

Proposed Change to Military Retirement Could Be Popular

A 200+ page study performed by the RAND Corporation, a nonprofit policy think tank, shows that a sweeping overhaul of the military retirement system could be quite popular to many soldiers.

The plan most popular to soldiers, according to the RAND report, would give soldiers retiring with 20 or more years of service a one-time "transition pay" lump sum immediately upon separation. This payout would be around two to three years' basic pay, and in return the monthly "working-age retirement" (under 65) would be capped at a maximum of 25% of basic pay.
