Students at war deserve college tuition breaks
As they did during Desert Storm, Missouri public colleges and universities are doing their part to help students who are called to military duty in America's Enduring Freedom campaign.
Every school in the state will refund tuition and suspend loan payments for students who are called to serve.
The financial relief could go to as many as 35 Southeast Missouri State University students who are members of the National Guard or reserves.
The students have no choice but to report for duty when called.
And they shouldn't be required to keep up with their educational expenses while they are away fighting a war.
These young men and women are sacrificing enough by putting their lives on the line in the war to end international terrorism.
And they shouldn't have to worry about how they are going to pay tuition for their educations that must be put on hold.
