Department of Defense officials say health care costs for the military have far outpaced inflation ....
So the DOD's budget proposal recommends making military retirees pay more for their healthcare benefits.
Katie Crosbie joins us now with more.
Ann, the DOD says the health care proposals would not affect active duty personnel or their families ...
But as you can imagine, this is getting a lot of attention from
retirees who could be impacted, if Congress approves this
The Department of Defense has submitted its budget request to Congress ...
And the proposal includes asking Congress to approve another round of Base Realignment and Closures -- or BRAC.
Katie Crosbie joins us now -- and Katie, we know the last BRAC in 2005 had a huge impact on Sheppard.
It sure did, Darrell ...
The last BRAC cuts moved the medical group to San Antonio -- meaning
Sheppard lost about 400 instructors and seven thousand students
That's why many members of the Sheppard Military Affairs Committee
-- or SMAC -- say they're concerned about this possibility.
