The army and marines have suspended their ta programs effective Friday evening. The air force and navy will likely follow suit this week. The DoD put pressure on all branches of service to trim the fat, one program encouraged to be cut was ta programs for service members.
Agreed. It's sad that the the programs being cut are heavily used by the service members and their families. Any ta approved before March 9 will be honored but in the army and marines no future ta assistance will be paid out until further notice..
I Work in the med group on a military base. When we heard about tricare not being protected we got worried. Hopefully affects to tricare will be minimal
The books as they stand are broke and these branches are seeing huge cuts. They are not going to take the cuts directly but pass it along to their programs.
