Question about paying for loans while active duty Right now I have been paying for my college tuition with student loans, and my dad is cosigned on all the loans. I'm going to start paying them back when I commission. If I get killed or hurt to the point where I can't work anymore and pay back the loans, what exactly happens with those loans? I won't have money to pay them and since my dad is cosigned, he is responsible to pay for them if I can't. Will they force him to pay them even if I'm hurt or dead?
