When Career Status Bonus (CSB) election time rolls around at a member's 15-year mark, the services should offer a "second chance" to enroll in the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) for those who didn't do it during boot camp. I've seen many, many enlisted servicemen deeply regret their decisions not to enroll in the MGIB while in basic training. It reinforces my belief that boot camp is the wrong time and place for a typical 18-year old to make long-term, irreversible yes/no decisions. It would be absurd to for recruits to make binding reenlistment decisions during basic training; it's equally absurd having them make critical decisions concerning future educational benefits there as well. When offered the MGIB at the 15-year CSB point, a member's maturity and personal situation should enable him/her to make a more sound decision concerning educational benefits. I look forward to reading the comments on this topic.
