AUSA opposes commissary cuts
from Association of the United States Army
The Association of the U.S. Army is a co-signer of a letter to Congress opposing proposed cuts in funding for commissaries. Along with other members of the Coalition to Save our Military Shopping Benefits, the association is asking Congress to reject a Defense Department proposal that would cut $322 million in commissary funding in fiscal year 2016. A similar letter from a federal employee union was sent in March to the leaders of the congressional committees responsible for military personnel policy. The American Federation of Government Employees said the cut in commissary funding "is a badly disguised attempt to put the commissaries into a death spiral."
