NGAUS Legislative Alert #15-7; 7 May 2015

The Issue: Support a floor amendment to the House National Defense Authorization Act for FY16 eliminating the age restriction on receipt of retired pay for non-regular service

Immediate Action Required: Contact your representatives immediately to support a floor amendment offered by Congressman Tim Walz (D-MN) that eliminates the age restriction on receipt of retired pay for non-regular service
More Information: NGAUS strongly supports a House floor amendment to the FY16 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), offered by Rep. Tim Walz, (D-MN), that would eliminate the age restriction on receipt of retired pay for non-regular service.

This amendment would allow retiring members of the National Guard, for the first time in nearly 70 years, to receive their retirement pay after 20 years of service. Removing the age restriction to collect retirement has historically been one of NGAUS’ highest priorities.

The House of Representatives will be voting on the NDAA on Wednesday, May 13th. Your immediate help to pass this important legislation is requested.

Please contact your representatives and urge them to support the Walz amendment.
