The Air Force is committed to education, and you’ll have the opportunity to take your training as far as you’d like, on or off base. Plus if you’re stationed overseas or stateside, your children can attend excellent schools on base.
When military members enlist, they have the option to elect the GI Bill. The current GI Bill program is the Post 9/11 GI Bill. It covers tuition for the military member for four years based on in-state rates with rates varying by state. In addition, the military member is entitled to a housing allowance at the rate of an E-5 with dependents for the zip code of the school as well as a $1,000 annual book allowance. At certain times in the military career, the military member may have the option to transfer GI Bill benefits to a spouse or dependent.
