Wilson Introduces Healthcare for Early Retirement Eligible Reservists Act of 2013

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Chairman Joe Wilson of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Military Personnel (SC-02) issued the following statement after introducing H.R. ___, the Healthcare for Early Retirement Eligible Reservists Act of 2013. This bill allows retirees of the National Guard and Reserve to receive medical and dental care at military treatment facilities prior to reaching age 60. The fiscal year 2009 National Defense Authorization Act granted qualifying retired reservists within our Armed Forces the ability to obtain early retirement, but did not grant healthcare benefits.

Wilson stated, "Since 2001, the members of the National Guard and Reserve have played an integral role in all of our overseas contingency operations. It is only fair that we offer these brave men and women, who have dedicated their lives to keep us safe, the healthcare they have earned and deserve while serving our nation."
