Veterans' groups clash over proposed changes to military benefits
Veterans' advocacy groups are clashing with each other over proposed changes to military retirement, health care and other benefits. The Military Coalition, an umbrella group of almost three dozen military, veterans and uniformed services organizations, couldn't reach an accord on the recommendations of the congressionally mandated Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission. Even as TMC members debate the recommendations with lawmakers, they plan to push back against parts of the Pentagon's proposed fiscal 2016 budget. "Congress has to deal with the budget this year," said Michael Hayden TMC co-chair and director of government relations for the Military Officers Association of America. "They don't have to deal with the MCRMC recommendations."
