TMC sends letter to every member of the Senate, urging rejection of several harmful provisions in the Defense Bill
from The Military Coalition
The Military Coalition (TMC), a consortium of uniform services and veterans associations representing more than 5.5 million current and former service members and their families and survivors, appreciates the hard work that went into S. 1376, the Senate Armed Services Committee mark-up of the FY 2016 National Defense Authorization Act. However, we respectfully request that you reject several harmful provisions in the proposed legislation that we find troubling. Some proposals in the mark continue to erode the pay and benefits needed to sustain the all-volunteer force (AVF) and their families: specifically, the annual pay raise, basic allowance for housing, TRICARE pharmacy fees, and the commissary subsidy cut ... Your colleagues in the House have already rejected these proposals and we ask you to do the same.
