#KeepYourPromise Senators Join us here: https://www.facebook.com/events/239195126239820/239678662858133/?notif_t=like Recommended Language for emails and Facebook (thanks for the help from MOAA): Dear Senator {insert your Senator’s name}, We are a/an {insert service} family and your constituents. I'm writing to ask you to reject a provision within the Bipartisan Budget Act that threatens to significantly slash retirement benefits for current and future military retirees. The FY 2014 budget proposal includes a provision that cuts the annual Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for uniformed service retirees by 1 percent each year until age 62. The cuts will have a devastating and long-lasting impact. By age 62 retirees who serve a 20 year career would lose nearly 20 percent of their retired pay. I'm asking you to reject this provision that breaks faith with current and future military retirees, and threatens long term readiness and retention in the uniformed services. I’ve included three recent articles, all written by military spouses, to provide you a sense of the outrage and betrayal our community is feeling: http://www.cnn.com/2013/12/13/opinion/sanderlin-military-pensions/ http://spousebuzz.com/blog/2013/12/congressional-abuse-military-pay-promises.html http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/12/13/1262513/-Embrace-the-Suck We need your help in ensuring this bill isn’t passed or the provision is taken out. We’ve had your back for the last decade plus of war. Especially this next week, we need you to watch ours. A vote for this bill (as is) is a vote against military families. As a constituent, I am requesting you inform me of your position on this issue. Thank you for your support. Sincerely, {Insert your name} [Consider including a family picture]

Recommended Language for Twitter: {insert Senator’s Twitter Handle} Keep faith with military families. Reject Ryan-Murray amend. that devastates mil retirement #KeepYourPromise.
