The current federal deployment ends after 89 days…90 days are required for a boost in GI Bill benefits including pensions and educational allowances. This from the administration that keeps touting their support of the US Military…hmmmmm…maybe not so much…aina?
“It seemed kind of weird to me,” said retired Brig. Gen. J. Joy Robinson, president of the National Guard Association. “It’s a Wednesday. And it also coincides with 89 days of deployment for any soldiers who went on federal status at the beginning. I was getting all kinds of calls about it and I said, ‘It’s probably just a coincidence.’ But in the back of my mind, I know better. They’re screwing the National Guard members out of the status they should have.”
