  1. Do you know about the requirements to transfer the GI bill? My husband would give his to me, but I heard he had to have 6 years in, etc…

    1. Erika,

      The Department of Defense (DoD) is authorized to allow individuals who, on or after August 1, 2009, have served at least 6 years in the Armed Forces and who agree to serve at least another 4 years in the Armed Forces to transfer unused entitlement to their Spouse. Once the member has reached their 10 year anniversary they may choose to transfer the benefit to any dependent(s) (spouse, children). The Department of Defense may, by regulation, impose additional eligibility requirements and limit the number of months transferable to not less than 18 months.

      Hope that helps, from!

  2. I can’t imagine carrying the load you did (with school, work and child) with your spouse gone. So great you were able to do that & make it happen. I didn’t realize the opportunties for spouses – I thought they were just for those in the military. I have a good friend who really could use this information.

    1. Thank you Heather-Marie, it was hard work no doubt in that…but worth it in the end! 🙂
