Abstract:

Mr. Chairman, I appreciate the opportunity to testify on military compensation issues. In this and the next several years, the Subcommittee faces difficult decisions about a wide variety of compensation issues that will affect defense spending. My testimony today will focus on three issues of particular interest to this Subcommittee military pay raises, accrual accounting for military retirement, and reimbursement of members for permanent change of station moves. I will assess the effects of alternative pay raises on costs and on the ability to recruit and retain needed military personnel. Your decisions will also have important effects on morale and equity, which I realize you must weigh along with the cost and manning implications.
