    Idaho Army National Guard Lt. Col. Jeff Drawe’s desire to continue learning led him to completing an introductory welding course at the College of Western Idaho in December. The course consisted of 30 hours of instruction over five Saturdays. Drawe used the Idaho National Guard’s State Education Assistance Program to pay the course’s $595 tuition. SEAP is one of multiple Idaho National Guard educational programs that helps citizen-Soldiers earn college credits or degrees as well as credentials and certificates in trade programs. Federal Tuition Assistance, the G.I. Bill and the Army Credentialing Assistance Program are available for most members to pursue their academic and education goals. Drawe sees the value of everyone learning a trade or a new skills. “The world is built by tradesman, everything that we do requires trade,” he said. “Regardless of your employment situation, if you’re ever laid off you’ll always be able to find employment.” (U.S. National Guard photo by Master Sgt.
