  •  I'll call my contact in Bernie Sanders' office who (3+ / 0-)

    works on vet affairs for an update. He will have a good read on how close this issue is to coming to fruition.

    I suspect it is really close, because when I spoke with him a few months ago, he was coming to Vermont to interview vets to see what their take on retirement pay and benefit changes might be. It does look like there will be efforts made to cut veteran benefits further than they have already been cut.

    I think that is a disastrous policy for our military. There is no honor, only shame, in altering commitments we made to our military members when they enlisted.
