Iraq and Afghanistan vets, do you qualify for Stop-Loss?

Another friendly reminder for those affected by Stop-Loss

If you or a loved one involuntarily were caught in the Stop-Loss and had your service extended between Sept. 11, 2001 and Sept. 30, 2009 you are eligible for Retroactive Stop Loss Pay. That is $500 for every month you were extended.

Time is running out though, the Department of Defense did extend the deadline; but only until
Dec. 18, 2010.

So if you as a service member, veteran, or beneficiary of a military member qualify for this Stop-Loss
Pay, please submit your claim immediately. The DoD website will provide links where you can get
more information or start you RSLP claim you can find it here http://www.defense.gov/stoploss)

The average payment is $3,700. Do not let this slip away, it was earned and is deserved.
