    If the bill is passed or not; its still great to know that a person can serve his country for 20 years in part-time status and receive a pension. No other profession offers that benefit.
    I am monitoring the bill, and I believe the Senate will do the right thing. The issue is money since you will increase the veteran pool but I believe it is worth is.

    Ironically, what happened to me was that I was always using the VA and then went on federal active duty. There was a VA clinic on the installation but I could not use it since I was now on orders and had to use the base clinic. I showed them my VA card but it still did not mattered.
    WOW. I am so glad that you shared that information.

    I hope this passes. I work full time for the national guard and being under Title 32, I will never get benefits as a "Veteran".

    I'm sorry what's going on w/ you and your situation. I hope they pass this bill.
