  •  What really pisses me off is that the DoD (7+ / 0-)

    has already decided to save money by raising health care rates on military retirees in preparation for severe budget cuts.

    I am so sick and tired of the politics of all this. All my husband wanted to do was serve the public and do a job he loved doing; now, he has a politically active wife because everything about military life is turning into a political game. War/no war - decided by Congress and the President. Health care/no health care - decided by Congress and the President. Retirement plan/ no retirement plan - decided by Congress and the President. Keep expensive weapons plans/Keep expensive weapons plans... yep, no one ever puts the stupid weapons plans on the cutting board, nor the ships, the planes, or other hardware used to deploy the weapons.

    I swear, military families need to learn how to lobby and we need to learn how to do it from day 1 of service. It should be part of basic training for military spouses.
