Military benefits

Last month, the House passed HR 3016m which included a 50 percent cut in the monthly Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) provided to children who will have their parent’s earned Post-9/11 G.I. Bill benefit transferred to them.

Now, similar legislation is being considered in the Senate (S.425) that would put the hard-fought benefits of 2.8 million post-9/11 veterans at even greater risk.

I’m standing with my fellow Non Commissioned Officers Association members in opposition to these cuts to the G.I. Bill, and ask you to stand with us.

Please pledge to preserve the benefits promised to all new veterans and their families and oppose all attempts to use the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill as a piggy bank to fund other government programs. The G.I. Bill is one of the most successful veterans programs in American history.

Please email Advocates@NCOA.org and pledge to fight against any attempts to cut education benefits for military members, veterans and our families.
