Maj. Tony Weaver of Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 2nd Infantry Division, fills out Tuition Assistance paperwork so that he can enroll in a course toward a master's degree only hours before the deadline for suspension of TA, at the Camp Red Cloud education center, March 8, 2013. The Secretary of the Army suspended TA last week until further notice in the face of current federal government budget constraints. Army education centers stand ready to further assist Soldiers in exploring other possible funding sources for their education. Weaver was one of about 920 Soldiers Korea-wide who rushed to Army education centers hoping to enroll for TA before the suspension took effect.
