    With Honor Action Endorses the Military Quality of Life Panel’s Legislative Recommendations

    With Honor Action Endorses the Military Quality of Life Panel’s Legislative Recommendations

    Washington, D.C. – The House Armed Services Committee’s Military Quality of Life Panel has just released their report and recommendations for the upcoming Fiscal Year 2025 National Defense Authorization Act. With Honor Action endorses their recommendations to improve military pay and compensation, child care, housing, access to health care, and spouse support programs.

    The Military Quality of Life Panel is a bipartisan group led by For Country Caucus founding Co-Chair, Rep. Don Bacon, and founding Vice Chair, Rep. Chrissy Houlahan and includes caucus members Rep. Don Davis and Rep. Morgan Luttrell. The panel was formed in June 2023 to address the pressing quality of life issues faced by many servicemembers and their families. Since then, they have held hearings, briefings, roundtables, and oversight visits at military installations. Based on the findings from these hearings, they have compiled a report of their findings and recommendations that can be found here.

    “Military quality of life has been a top priority for With Honor Action since our founding,” said Rye Barcott, Co-Founder and CEO of With Honor Action. “Our troops are giving their best every day, and they deserve nothing less from their leadership. With Honor Action is actively working alongside the members of the For Country Caucus to address these issues of food insecurity, housing, and access to mental and maternal healthcare in the military, and we urge lawmakers to place these issues at the top of their priorities as well.”

    In previous years, With Honor Action has worked closely with the bipartisan members of the For Country Caucus and the Senate to deliver for our servicemembers and their families. Our work has included the passage of the Military Moms Matter Act, which standardized parental leave policies across all the service branches; the Brandon Act, which made it easier for servicemembers to seek mental health resources confidentially; and the Reserve Component Parental Leave Parity Act, which extends active-duty parental leave eligibility standards to the Reserve Components and National Guard.

    With Honor Action thanks Representative Bacon, Representative Houlahan, and all of the members of the Quality of Life Panel for their leadership and urges Congress to include their recommendations in the FY25 NDAA.
