    Tricare came in to provide healthcare for military vets and spouses and dependants because they decided that providing healthcare for them was too expensive and they should pay for some of it.  When I joined in the 70's, the promise of lifetime healthcare was a big reason to make a career.  Funny how lifetime got shorter.  How it was taken from dependants.  My husband stayed in for that reason, so we would have healthcare, a future with a pension, guarenteed by the US government, and it used to be that was a great guarentee.  Not anymore.
