IT’S A NEW YEAR! WHAT CAN WE EXPECT IN 2016?

Some changes are always welcome, some are not. One change we don’t want to see: reduced savings at the commissary.

2015 brought big changes to military retirement. 2016 will see major proposals from lawmakers to overhaul other military benefits. One of the things we hope won’t change is the average of 30 percent savings provided at the commissary.

At 10:30 on January 13, I will be testifying before the House Armed Services Subcommittee at a hearing on commissary reform. MOAA supports a commissary system equipped to provide high quality products, high customer satisfaction, and savings sustained at current levels both stateside and overseas. Tune in to find out what MOAA and other advocacy groups have to say about it.

Yours in Service,

Brooke
