Topics cover the life cycle of a joint task force: forming a joint task force, developing joint manning documents, joint command and control, joint basing, and integrating special operations forces.

A&P Licenses

College Loan Repayment Program (CLRP)
The College Loan Repayment Program is an enlistment incentive. Like other enlistment incentives authorized by Congress, each of the services are free to offer the program, or not, as they see fit, in order to meet their established recruiting goals. Under the program, the military will repay a portion of eligible college loans for non-prior service enlisted military members.

Interested in a military "language job?" Check out the "been there, done that" article about the DLI by Trish, a member of our message forum.

Diploma Mills
Expect to get promotion points for a college degree that requires no class work or tests? Think again, warn Department of Defense education specialists. A diploma mill is a college or university that operates primarily to make money, often offering college credit for life experiences rather than any formal education. As far as the military is concerned, such degrees are worthless.

Jump School
When you think about the term 'paratroopers,' you probably think about the U.S. Army. And, the Army does have more paratroopers than any of the other services. However, all of the services have troops who are trained to jump out of perfectly good aircraft, and all of those troops go through the same training at the Army's Airborne School.

The Perfect University
The perfect university has high academic standards, moral discipline, free tuition, free meals, and free room and board. Impossible? Nope. The United Statres Military Service Academies fit the bill perfectly.

Transforming the Way the Military Trains
The joint force is now a reality, and the American military must train as it fights. To that end, the Department of Defense is transforming the way the services train.

Student Loans
Military personnel who have been deployed or mobilized are not required to make student loan payments during their absences.
