The Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America (JWV) is joining with others in The Military Coalition to call on Congress to protect the interests of service members in the FY2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
The JWV wants to ensure the NDAA includes among other items, a pay raise for members of the military, the elimination of medical billets, and elimination of the Survivor Benefit Plan/Dependency Indemnity Compensation offset.
The Military Coalition, along with JWV has sent a letter highlighting these priorities for the NDAA to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees. Please click here for a copy of the letter.
