The American Legion has expressed its strong opposition to a measure that would cut benefits for military retirees by $6.3 billion. ALL VETERANS are now being urged to contact their congressional delegations to remove cuts included in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013.

The measure would reduce cost-of-living retirement benefits for military retirees by 1 percent per year until they reach the age of 62. There are published estimates that the potential loss of income is about $70,000 on the low end to $120,000 on the high end, depending on retired rank and years of service.

"The cost-of-living adjustments (COLA) decrease would be disrespectful to Americas men and women who have devoted their careers at great personal cost to the safety and welfare of our nation," American Legion National Commander Dan Dellinger said.

Please take a moment to help? Thank you.

UPDATE:

On 1/17/2014, after an amended spending bill passed in the House & Senate, President Obama signed it into law.

Bottom line...This is proof that if we stand up for our rights and come together as one voice we can defeat ANY attacks on our hard-earned benefits.

GOOD JOB TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED...WE WIN!!!!

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.

Keep in mind though that it is NOT tax deductible and we are NOT a non profit. As the site grows so do the costs and ads and subscription do not always keep pace with the costs.
