Senate revises death benefits for reservists
from Army Times
A change in death benefits that would extend payment to reservists who die at home during drill weekends passed the Senate by voice vote. Retroactive to Jan. 1, 2010, death gratuity and burial benefits provided for active-duty deaths will be extended to reservists who die while at home during or between successive days of inactive duty training, under the amendment to the 2012 defense authorization bill sponsored by Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark.
