    On the afternoon of March 12, 2014, Jennifer Collins checked her phone and found a message from her husband, Dave Collins, a retired Navy SEAL. He’d texted to say that she should pick up their son from kindergarten, and then this: “So sorry baby. I love you all.” Hours later, two police officers showed up at their house in Virginia Beach with news that Dave, 45, had shot himself in his truck a few miles away. Although Jennifer had held out hope for any other explanation, she also knew the moment she read it what the text meant. For months,...

    A new study suggests that 25 percent of troops in active duty, Guard and the Reserve use food banks to provide groceries and meals for themselves or their families. The study sponsored by Feeding America, the nation's largest food bank network, is conducted once every four years and was based on data collected in 2012. It found that four percent of surveyed households who used a food bank contained a currently serving military member. Based on those results, Feeding America officials estimated that 620,000 of their 46.5 million customers, or about 25 percent of the military population in 2012, used...

    Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has finished undergoing therapy and counseling at an Army hospital in San Antonio and could return to active duty as early as Monday, a defense official tells CNN. Some critics of the swap have said Bergdahl was a deserter who endangered colleagues searching for him. An Army fact-finding investigation conducted in the months after his disappearance concluded he left his outpost deliberately and of his own free will, according to an official who was briefed on the report. But there was no definitive conclusion Bergdahl was a deserter because that would require knowing his intent, something...

    Military Tricare Hearing: The House Armed Services Committee held a series of hearings this week to discuss the military health system for active duty and retirees.

Much of the discussion centered on proposed Tricare fee increases. The VFW strongly opposes any Tricare fee increase, and believes DOD needs to first reduce Tricare Management Activity infrastructure costs...

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 11, 2008 – All four services met or exceeded their active-duty recruiting goals for January, defense officials announced today. The January recruiting numbers represented the eighth consecutive month of across-the-board active-duty recruiting successes among the services, officials said. The Army recruited 8,693 active-duty soldiers, 101 percent of its goal, in January. This came as welcome news to Army officials, who had feared that the delayed passage of the fiscal 2008 National Defense Authorization Act could hurt positive recruiting momentum. The legislation, which passed into law Jan. 28, includes authorities for a variety of special and incentive pays, including...

    AP Military Writer The Pentagon has abandoned its limit on the time a citizen-soldier can be required to serve on active duty, officials said Thursday, a major change that reflects an Army stretched thin by longer-than-expected combat in Iraq. The day after President Bush announced his plan for a deeper U.S. military commitment in Iraq, Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters the change in reserve policy would have been made anyway because active-duty troops already were getting too little time between their combat tours. The Pentagon also announced it is proposing to Congress that...

    The War on Terrorism and deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq have caused concern over the availability of combat and combat support forces. The Department of Defense is searching for new strategies to recruit and retain forces to maintain current authorized levels, while at the same time trying to grow Army forces by about 30,000 troops. One answer to these shortages is to permit retired active duty service members to join a reserve component for the remainder of their service period at least up to their Mandatory Removal Date. Currently, that is not permitted. The reserve components have been stretched thin,...

Though he doesn't know for certain, the odds are favorable that the 68-year-old psychiatrist has blown out more birthday candles than any other serviceman deployed in the Middle East; at least, anyone who doesn't wear a general's star.
