Your phone lines are so busy that I can't even be put on hold. I understand, the GI Bill department of the V.A. is probably an intense place to be right now, so I'll just leave this here.
I was getting out of the Army, "breaking contact", so to speak. I was assured and assured that the GI Bill was going to cover the expenses, was gonna cover me while I assaulted my objective (college), if you take my meaning. You can imagine my surprise when I realized I was all alone, figuratively overrun.
I'm up. He sees me. I'm broke.
That doesn't matter anymore though, it's done and over with, no hard feelings. I made the mistake of not having a backup plan. That was my fault.
It gets better though. After I dropped out, the housing allowance money started coming through. I used that money to pay off my debts and live off of. I recognize that this creates an issue. I would like to find out how much I owe you, and how we can straighten this out and get back to square one. I just need to know what you need from me, and I'll make the rest happen.
OBJECTIVE: Attending classes, full time, powering toward a degree THIS FALL, 2010. I ask you, VA, if you're up to it. If so, my email is the.usual_suspect at hotmail.
