The demands of serving in the United States armed forces are fundamentally different from any civilian activity. As a result, our elected leaders have told us repeatedly over the years, if you do what the country needs we will take care of you and your family after you retire. This commitment to military retirees proved false when Sen. Patty Murray and Rep. Paul Ryan authored legislation, behind closed doors and without public debate, to retroactively cut the retirement benefits of the American military community. This retroactive retirement cut was the only one in their entire federal government budget proposal.
