NMFA sends letter to conferees

from National Military Family Association

Military families consistently tell us how much they value the savings they achieve by shopping at the commissary, which we consider a vital element in military compensation. For this reason, we oppose the provisions in S. 1376 that would transfer the cost of second destination shipping to commissary patrons, thereby increasing prices. We support Section 641 of H.R. 1735 that would protect commissary supplies and prices for military families assigned to Asia and the Pacific. We reiterate our opposition to Section 652 of S. 1376, which would require the Department of Defense to carry out a pilot program privatizing five commissaries. We fear that taking such a step would lead to the erosion of the commissary benefit, which military families tell us they rely on. more
