Save Military Training Money

Many Military training courses require students to show up 2 or 3 days ahead of time, frequently over a weekend, when training does not start until Monday morning. Review the reporting requirements and make the default report time the day before training starts since this enables inprocessing. This would save money and reduce the number of military in the student account, giving them time with families, precious now that they are deployed so frequently. If there is a good reason for students to show up early, make sure their time is well spent.
