good info - odd that OP hasn't posted again - but maybe the thread will be handy for another Soldier leaving the service.

To the OP, thank you for your service. I did the same thing that you are planning, only mine was in the 70"s. I attended the Univ. of Maryland, had no family at all on the east coast. I was accepted for the next term, I found a job working nights and found a studio apt that the landlady let me slide until I got my first paycheck, you'll never know until you ask, she was nice enough and being a veteran she had no problem. I worked at my job and attended school during the day, it was a challenge, but you have to do what is needed, one thing the military taught me was to never leave something half done. Took me 4 and a half year to get my degree (Electronic Engineering). What was nice is I worked for an electronics company in Beltsville, MD., they offered me an engineering position after I graduated. I turned it down, and returned to the west coast, there I got a job with Motorola International as a communication design engineer, the job was awesome, I got to see a lot of the Pacific Rim area.
