    but one could go to their local Army or USMC recruiting office and sign up for the infantry.  Then get sent to Afghanistan and have a run in with an IED.  Then after 3-5 years of claims and appeals, if the VA awards 100% P&T Disability, then it takes about 3 months for Nelnet, a contractor for DoEd, to discharge the student loans.

    Not exactly what happened to me, I was a little before Bush II's adventures and it took me since 2004 for my claim to finally reach BVA, but that is how it would be done nowadays
