A provision in the recently passed Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 (H. J. Res 59) penalizes current and future military members who have served our nation for over twenty years. Specifically, it cuts the annual Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for uniformed service retirees by 1 percentage point a year until age 62.

The cuts will have a devastating and long-lasting impact. By age 62, retirees who serve a 20 year career would lose nearly 20 percent of their retirement pay purchasing power. An E-7 retiring at age 40 today would experience a loss of $83,000 in purchasing power – an O-5 would lose $124,000.

Send your elected officials the message below asking them to repeal this provision that breaks faith with current and future military retirees, and threatens long term readiness and retention in the uniformed services.

Here are the elected officials that voted to break the promise:

No I am not the real Jai Eugene from LSU. Or as Jai is known at Tennessee as "the one that got away". I am retired Army Aviator that happens to have a blog that produces sometimes relevant Tennessee Vols content. Sure those dicks over DawgSports and the MGOBlog say we are a little "analysis challenged". Maybe it had something to do with me helping to defend their first amendment rights overseas while they were out shopping at the mall. Anyway, we have been around since 2006. Been mentioned in GoVolsxtra, Sports illustrated, ESPN, the Atlanta Journal and Deadspin to name but a few major left wing sports media that seem to think we do a pretty good job.

    Please help us get the signatures we need for this petition in regards to Military Retiree COLA ... I am not sure if it will help anything but we have to try.
