When service members enlist, they are promised a variety of benefits for 20 or more years of honorable service. These include health care coverage, access to commissaries and the option to elect a benefit plan for their survivors, to name a few. FRA believes these promises must be kept – not only to recruit and retain the best and brightest within our armed forces, but because it is the right thing to do.
When Congress considers cost-saving measures, military retirees are often the first target of opportunity for budget cuts and FRA stands strong to ensure promised benefits are not compromised.
