    Tricare Changes coming...

    http://security.blogs.cnn.com/2012/0...ion/?hpt=hp_t1

    mil. Budget going, going, gone...


    The portion of the outline that may trigger the most opposition is a plan aimed at troops' salaries and retired troops' health benefits. Panetta promised full pay raises for fiscal 2013 and 2014, but he said, "We will achieve some cost savings by providing more limited pay raises beginning in 2015."
    As for health care, he plans no changes for active duty troops and their families, but "we decided that to help control the growth of health care costs, we are recommending increases in health care fees, co-pays and deductibles for retirees." Panetta said.
    Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made clear Thursday that he supports the plan laid out by Panetta, but admitted it does contain risks. "The primary risks lie not in what we can do, but in how much we can do and how fast we can do it," Dempsey said. "I am convinced we can properly manage them."
    Of course, this is all a proposal that must go through Congress. Wednesday night, Panetta met with leaders of the congressional Armed Services and Appropriations committees to give them a preview of Thursday's announcement.
    "Perhaps today is a good day to die! Prepare for ramming speed!"
    "I am KLINGON! If you doubt it, a demonstration can be arranged!"

    I saw this. Not particularly happy with some things that have been happening but
    Don't have much say I guess.

    Also just called for a new round of BRACs. Benning doesn't have to worry but smaller installation better watch out.
