    I know plenty of people, including myself, who have taken online courses. I wasn't fortunate enough to be able to do it while I was deployed however. What is your question exactly?

    If I get it automatically, I should get mine back in a little over 2 months. You still have to wait 6 months. :dunno:

    You cannot even manage your own life!!!! How can you try to manage classes too, you will just get demoted again for fucking something up.

    wow you just now got demoted for buying cigs in basic, lol army.

    But it is not hard to take classes while away, go talk to your education office there on base.

    I have never been to Iraq. From what I've heard from my buddies though is that there is plenty of down/extra time there now. Not sure what you will be actually doing regardless of your MOS. If you fail the course or do not finish it on time you will have to pay for it. Keep that in mind.

    no point for me to chime in about taking classes as Im air force and I surf the web, send emails and drink coffee all day in iraq.

    He states he was demoted Oct 27th for buying cigarettes while in basic training, you replied "wow you just now got demoted for buying cigs in basic, lol army". Last time I looked at the calender it was Feb 08 2010 when he posted, so my comment stands and you're still a dumbass.

    definitely doable. i completed 18 SH in my spare time over 13 months. a lot of our guys on the PSD were able to take 1-2 courses at a time, despite having to move several times a week. the army will pay for your tuition, but they won't buy course materials. get the pell grant through financial aid so that you can get some money to buy books.

    dude, you're like retarded. *YOU* stated that he just NOW got demoted for purchasing cigarettes, yet he got demoted 4 months ago, WHILE STILL IN BASIC.

    he made this thread in February, and he got demoted in October. That was 4 months ago, WHILE HE WAS STILL IN BASIC.

    should i draw up a timeline for you?
