Heck Issues Statement on Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission Report

2015/01/29

WASHINGTON -- Congressman Joe Heck (NV-03), Chairman of the House Armed Services Military Personnel Subcommittee, today issued the following statement on the release of the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission report.

"I commend and thank the Commission for its diligent work preparing this report on what is a very complex subject. Two years ago Congress handed down a tough assignment, tasking the Commission to review and make recommendations on military compensation, retirement, and benefits. We all knew there would be understandably strong feelings surrounding this report from service members, their families, and the numerous organizations that represent them.

"My commitment, to both our men and women in uniform and the members of the Commission, as the Chairman of the Military Personnel Subcommittee is to give this report a fair, thorough, and transparent examination before the Subcommittee. And I look forward to reviewing the full report and hearing from the Commissioners and other key stakeholders in the weeks ahead.

"My goal is to ensure we have a pay and benefits structure that keeps the faith with those who served and are serving and allows us to recruit and retain the best all volunteer military force in the world into the future."
