The effects will be nationwide to the Army’s decision to cut tuition funding for soldiers and reservists.

The Army announced Friday that servicemembers who are already enrolled in courses will receive their education benefits, but they will not be paying for any new enrollees.

Army officials state that sequestration cuts have forced them to trim education benefits.

Student Veterans of American said in a statement, “In this fiscal climate, I understand that tough funding decisions must be made. However, it is utterly unacceptable that the first casualties of Congress’ inability to act are education benefits for servicemembers.”
