Via the House Armed Services Commity:
We flagged this early last week. Chairman Joe Wilson from South Carolina runs our military personnel subcommittee and sent this letter up to Secretary Hagel on Friday.In it, we attached the list of pay and benefits that are included in the Pay Our Military Act. See the list below the letter. The House interrupted this as including the Death Gratuity. The Obama Administration chose to read it as not including the Death Gratuity.
