The team discussed the pay benefits including the 11.7 percent increase, Variable Housing Allowance, increase in PCS mileage ceiling, increased Champus coverage, per diem increase, and others.

Veteran's benefits increase 10 percent Washington (AFNS) - Changes in veterans-educational benefits went into effect recently when the presi- dent signed the veterans-benefits legislation into law. Public Law 96-466 authorizes an overall 10 percent increase in ed- ucational benefits for service mem- bers eligible for the old G.I. Bill. This includes service members who served on active duty or were in the delayed enlistment program before Jan. 1, 1977, and ROTC cadets called to active duty during 1977. Other adjustments were also included and you should consult with the veterans administration or your service's career counselor for fur- ther details. The law does not include a Senate proposal to extend the old GI Bill's use-or-lose date of Dec. 31, 1989. The House Veterans Affairs Committee has made a commitment to review that issue during next year's efforts to design an all-volunteer-force G.I. Bill.
