So I enlisted with a BA (yeah yeah, I know), did my tour in the desert, and now I'm on a non-scholarship green to gold route to being an officer. I'm also doing SMP with the local national guard unit, and now I have a question: Assumptions: The 3 years I do after commissioning as a non-scholarship ROTC cadet qualifies me for the Post 9/11 GI Bill. I know that anybody with 6 years of active duty service can (while they're still AD) do another 4 years to transfer their Post 9/11 to one or more dependents. I know the local NG is offering the MGIB-SR as a recruitment incentive. Apparently SMP cadets can also get a GI Bill kicker, too with prior service. I know that I've read in a bunch of places that you can't use more than 48 months of GI Bill benefits from any 2 or more VA programs. Question: Does the above mean that I can sign up for the MGIB-SR while doing my 2 years of grad school, get 12 months of MGIB-SR payments with kicker, tell them to stop paying my benefits at month 12, graduate and commission, do my 3 years active duty for the Post 9/11 GI Bill qualification, add an additional 4 more to my ADSO, and then finally transfer my 36 months of Post 9/11 GI Bill to my kids? Any help would be appreciated!
