Protecting Personnel Programs

Issue Background

We can never pay our service members enough for the sacrifices they and their families endure to protect our nation, but FRA believes we have an obligation to provide the highest quality of life possible for these deserving heroes. FRA works to ensure military pay scales, as well as housing allowances, health care and other benefits, keep pace with the demands of military service.

FRA also supports force management policies that ensure sufficient manpower to meet the operational demands placed on the military services and works to make sure U.S. Coast Guard personnel programs remain on a par with the programs and benefits available to DoD service members.

Where We Stand
  • Annual military pay raises that are at least equal to the Employment Cost Index (ECI).
  • Quality government-provided quarters and enlisted housing allowances that reflect actual housing costs.
  • Programs and benefits that enhance the quality of life for service members and their families.
