Reduce Age Requirement for Reserve Component Soldiers/Sailors Retirement
- United States Congress, United States Senate
- United States of America
This Petition is to allow the reduction of the age cap for reserve component soldiers and sailors who are in the U.S. Armed Forces(Reserve) and National Guard. The current age a retired person must be is 60 years of age. We would like to see the age limit reduced or eleminated. We would also like the funds to be placed in an account that draws intrest so the money can work for us. It is not right that soldiers and sailors who are in a reserve status, be called to active duty at any time, meet all the same training requirments, and not be treated the same when we retire with over 20 years of service. All we want is to be treated the same as the active duty forces. One Army, One Navy, One Air Force, One Corps all the way until the end, not just while on duty.
We the undersigned registered voters of the United States of America, request the fair representation of all reserve component soldiers and sailors. We request that the retirement age that is required to be met, before the retirement pension can be drawn, be reduced or eliminated. The recognition of all reserve component soldiers and sailors is vital to the security of our Nation. To do what is right, which is allowing the same benefits for the soldiers who are called to active duty on a moments notice, is the only thing we are asking.
