  1. The military have always had a program for university training.The requirement was if you qualified that after you received a free university education while receiving a salary you were required to spend four years in the military after graduation. Iffy's plan is a vote buyer .Join the military spend four years and we will give you a free university education with pay no strings attached.How about firefighters ,ambulance drivers ,hospital workers,social workers.forest workers etc. Most of these workers risk their lives far more in daily work than most in the military.
