Well, it is accurate.
Yeah, the monetary price is a nice benefit!
You're right it's a great benefit.
But as we here know, freedom isn't free...my husband (a USAFA grad) when feeling snarky will add to that comment, "yeah, it was a free education, and I got it shoved up my bum one nickel at a time while there"
I'm not that crude and will tell friends and civilians about the 5-yr military commitment following graduation, too.
Here's another interesting comment we heard this weekend, hubby told a friend about son's CGA appt and he said "congrats, my son wanted to go that route but frankly, the admissions process by itself overwhelmed us.."
A compliment in a round-about way!
