    Good morning everyone! Due to my boats, and life's, crazy schedule I have t been able to sign on in quite a while. Hope all is well! 
     I come to you today in need of information not for myself, but my wife. She put her education on hold to come up here with me to Kodiak.  Now we're all settled in to the coast guard lifestyle and she is yearning to finish up school. The only problem happens to be financially. We were both making some good money in Florida, now I'm an E-3 and she works and the exchange. Are there any educational assistance programs for spouses? She's looked through quite a few for military spouses but has constantly been turned down because we're not DOD. Does anybody have any more info? She's a wonderful, hard working, goal driven woman who does everything for me. She deserves to accomplish her goals and she's helped me accomplish mine. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you everyone!

    There's really not much for spousal assistance. There may be certain scholarships out there for spouses if you look hard enough, but that's about it. On the other hand, you could have her join the reserves and receive tuition assistance.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    Where you at in Kodiak, I shall be heading to the arctic once again.

    If you wait 6 years you can pass her your GI bill and then you have to obliserv another 4 years, or wait until 10 years and then you do not have to obliserv.

    lol i doubt that helps but its there. Honestly I would go to a community college as long as you can, just make sure it'll transfer over to another school.
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    Thanks guys. @cooch- she's been considering joining for a while now. She knows more about the coast guard than most people in my 170 person unit and loves it! She's afraid of BOOTCAMP a bit, but moreover the possibility of us being apart more than we are now. The rate she's interested in ( YN ) apparently does not have a big, or any, reserve billets.....unless I'm wrong about that? She'd be good in any rate really, just being such a family oriented pair, she doesn't like the possibility of going active, having kids and our kids never seeing her or myself. Does anybody have any light on that situation, experiences?

    Call the recruiting office in Anchorage to see what jobs are open in the area. YN may be one of them.
