With several new ASIs being developed for Engineer officers in the Army should the Army pay for officers to go back to college to get engineering degrees? I mean outside of TA and GI Bill. If the slot is requiring construction officers two ASIs should the Army pay for the schooling like they would any other ASIs?

As an EN officer with no Eng degree, I have to be upfront...I have a dog in the fight...

If new regulations require specific skill sets that weren't originally required when an officer was assigned to branch EN, then yes, the Army should pay to have those officers that lack those skill sets brought up to speed with the new regulations.

New officers, on the other hand, getting assigned to EN branch should have those skill sets already before getting assigned. I do think it's interesting that a branch might have more stringent criteria for assignment than others...and wonder how that would affect the branch. Unintended consequences have a very special way of showing up where they're not wanted!
