Thanks for the post. Heard something about this on the news today... Don't think it will go anywhere myself, except perhaps for charging to transferring benefits, if that.

Unfortunately I think this is the (possibly intended?) effect of a policy change like that. New E-2/3's pulling in $1k a month are not going to be very likely/able to contribute $100 to buy into the program despite being the ones who would benefit the most. I think the new retirement system functions the same way.

“There's the concern some folks with a strained budget, particularly junior enlisted, may feel like they have to choose between family health care now, education later, or retirement well into the future.” - See more at: http://www.moaa.org/Content/Take-Action/Top-Issues/Currently-Serving/Congress-Mulls-Changes-to-Post-9/11-GI-Bill.aspx?utm_source=legis&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=GIBillChanges#sthash.gTX6qFaB.dpuf
