War vs College...

War,... why we can't have nice things.

Commentary: For $178 million, the U.S. could pay for one fighter plane – or 3,358 years of college | Reuters:

As a kind of thought experiment, let's begin by rounding off the military higher education benefit, tuition and living stipend, to $53,000 a year. We’ll note a single F-35 fighter plane costs $178 million. 
Dropping just one plane from inventory generates 3,358 years of college money. We could pass on buying a handful of the planes, and a lot of people who now find college out of reach could go to school.
