It’s a New Year and a new Congress. This new Congress is facing some challenging fiscal issues, be prepared for attempts to find “savings” in veteran services.

Already the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is proposing TriCare for Life enrolment fees and annual deductibles.

If you aren’t already using the MOAA advocacy links to raise your concerns with our elected officials consider doing so soonest.

MOAA National is preparing for the annual Advocacy in Action event in April to be an in-person, on the Hill event.

But that doesn’t mean that if you get a chance to talk with your Congressperson or Senator that you can’t let them know what is important to the 7% of us who wore our Nation’s uniforms.

Be looking for the topics for this year. You will see them in the MOAA electronic newslet-ters and other MOAA info sources.

New year, new Congress – there’s much we need to be watching. Stay vigilant and en-gaged with your representatives in Washington!
