How to destroy retention rates


The new “Post 9/11 GI Bill” will soon be heading for the President�s desk. This new benefit will give servicemembers and veterans who have served on active-duty since Sept. 11, 2001, a new education benefits package worth up to roughly $3,000 a month. The same legislation includes a change to the current Montgomery GI Bill that will increase the monthly payment to $1,321 a month — a total benefit of more than $47,000. The new law also enables servicemembers to transfer their GI Bill benefit to their dependents.

So, explain to me again how this will keep people in service?  When they can make more going to school than they did on active duty?

And though I’ve tried hard to understand, I just don’t get transferring benefits to dependents.  They aren’t getting shot at.

Guess Webb really does want to be Vice President.  He’s been pushing for this.
