Honor America's Guard-Reserve Retirees Act
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to urge you to cosponsor H.R.679, the Honor America's Guard-Reserve Retirees Act.This bill would authorize 'veteran status' for National Guard and Reserve members of the Armed Forces that are entitled to a reserve retirement at age 60, but were never called to active federal service during their careers. Career Reserve Component members that were never called to active duty over a full service career and are entitled to military retired pay, TRICARE health coverage and many veterans' benefits, deserve to be recognized as veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
