The issue is legisla- tion that would allow service-disabled military retirees to concurrently receive their military retired pay and their disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs• The Office of Management and Budget today issued a policy state- ment, recommending a presidential veto of any legislation that would authorize concurrent receipt of both retired pay and disability compensa- tion. The American Legion has been fighting hard on Capitol Hill to inval- idate the century-old provision that subtracts a dollar from a military retiree's retired pay for every dollar he Young Swedish pianist to perform here Child prodigy Swedish Pianist, Anders Gustafsson, will perform in the Milbank High School Theatre this Friday, June 28th, 2002 at 7:30 p.m. Anders, a 15-year old child prodigy from Amai, Sweden, his 10 year old sister Emma and father, who accompanies him on two keyboards giving a full orchestra sound, amaze audiences of any age. They play everything from boogie-woogie to the classics, he even performs "upside down!" His most notable Concert was for the King and Queen of Sweden. Anders is in the Midwest on tour. He recently performed in the 2001 Norsk Hostfest in Minot, ND. A free will offering will be taken. Refreshments will be served after the concert• Come, bring a friend!

"This is one of the hottest issues that I encounter in every place I visit," American Legion National Commander Richard J. Santos said. "A military career is filled with hard- ships, family separations, personal sacrifices, and all too often being placed in harm's way. Denying a mil- itary retiree an earned benefit - his or her military retirement pay - is uncon- scionable. Today, in Afghanistan, career officers and noncommissioned officers risk losing their retirement pay if they are wounded or seriously injured, which is absurd. "We are talking about two entirely different issues: longevity-of-service pay and disability compensation. You choose to serve your country, but you do not choose to get wounded or hurt. Punishing someone for getting shot in the defense of democracy is immoral and must not be tolerated by the American people. Congress under- stands which is the reason there is enough support for concurrent receipt legislation in both chambers to over- ride a veto." Ironically, a veteran (non-military retiree), collecting disability compen- sation, who retires from any govern- ment or private employer, receives concurrently retired pay and disability compensation without penalty. The law penalizes military retirees by not allowing concurrent receipt• And The American Legion takes issue with the status quo.
