Reserve and National Guard members today deserve a better “return on
investment” for their frequent deployments and long family separations.
And that should include improved health benefits and two ways to retire
earlier than age 60, said Lt. Gen. Jack C. Stultz, chief of Army
In an interview in his Pentagon office Thursday, Stultz shared his
thoughts on modernizing reserve compensation so it more suitably
rewards members and families who are sacrificing so much during wartime
operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
