Seth Moulton Unveils US Service Education Plan

(ABC News/"This Week")

By    |   Sunday, 19 May 2019 02:33 PM

Democratic primary candidate Seth Moulton, a Marine Corps veteran, unveiled a national service education program designed to encourage Americans 17-24 to serve their country one to three years, modeling it after the G.I. Bill.

"I'm calling for a National Service Education Guarantee because I want every American to have an opportunity to serve like I did – a chance to confront the challenges our country faces today, be a part of something bigger than themselves, and earn a promise that they will be rewarded for their efforts," Rep. Moulton, D-Mass., announced in a statement on his website.

"That's why my national service plan is modeled on the G.I. Bill and designed to build on its success in fostering a culture of service to this country we love."

The proposal, promoted on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, would cover 60% of in-state college tuition or up to $14K of job training costs for one year of service. A three-year commitment would cover full in-state tuition or $24K in training.

Moulton is among around two dozen Democrats lining up to complete in the primary for the 2020 presidential election. He faces long odds, however, not appearing in the top 10 candidates nationally or even in his home state, according RealClearPolitics.com.
