The men and women of the United States Military have been fighting a war for this country since 2001. They deserve far more then this country is willing to give them and the fact that there are talks of cutting their pay and allowances, and increasing the cost of their health care is outrageous. The United States Military has carried out very order that has been given to them during this war without question, as they should. It is not wise for this country to "bite the hands that feed them". To the elected officials of the United States Congress we ask you to not approve any deals of legislation involving a cut in pay and allowances, or an increase in the cost of tri-care fees.

The United States Military is already forced to live with sub standard pay and below average annual pay raises. If you need proof of this the all you have to do is Google 2012 Military pay charts....
The United States Military is already forced to live with sub standard pay and below average annual pay raises. If you need proof of this the all you have to do is Google 2012 Military pay charts. You will see that E-1 through E-5 make hardly enough for the work that is required of them. Keep in mind that these men and women are on call 24/7 and their lives are routinely placed on the line for the causes of the same politicians that are looking at making these cuts and pay raises.
