To start off, I'm mostly a lurker. To those than are feeling the cuts in the civilian world, for the fisrt, AD ROTC is suffering too. The AECP "Airman education commissioning program" was cut this week. This was the best program the AF had to offer to enlisted troops. The Air Force in exchange for a highly technical degree like super chemistry or weather, would pay housing and Staff Sgt pay. This program has been cut to the foreseeable future. This program in my opinion reperesented the most qualified people for technical degrees. There are still other programs that remain, but they only pay for tuition/books, housing and living expenses are your own.
