School is essential and luckily I'm a straight A student. But there are literally zero resources to help with the point between transition and GI bill. They just sort of leave you at the door with a "hey hope you have a plan buddy!" And luckily I do have a plan but this is part of it. I'm pursuing everything to make ends meet while my wife and I go to school.

California isn't cheap, especially Orange County and that GI bill is pennies compared to what we need. Loans are a necessity but even federal loans aren't enough in California. It's a different sort of challenge than what I faced my last four years, deploying and leading Marines.
