Air Force Times - A new report by a liberal-leaning think tank recommends a dramatic
overhaul of military pay, retirement and health care benefits as part of
a $1 trillion cut in defense spending over 10 years. The Center
for American Progress calls for capping pay raises, eliminating military
health benefits for many retirees who are covered by an
employer-provided plan, and reducing the value of military retired pay
as well as making retirees wait until age 60 to start receiving it.
