WASHINGTON— With the release today of the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission report,  Representative Duncan Hunter commends the Commission for its substantive recommendations.  Representative Hunter also commends the commission—and General Peter Chiarelli, in particular—for recommending improvements and coordination among DoD and VA drug formularies, with specific focus on assisting those with PTSD and TBI.

“General Chiarelli has been instrumental in raising awareness on the importance of taking action to address discrepancies in VA and DoD drug formularies,” said Hunter.  “For those who are injured and those who rely on the continuation of effective treatments for PTSD and TBI, this is one improvement that demands a high level of attention from Congress.  Our heroes deserve a system that works to support their medical needs—and I’m grateful for General Chiarelli’s leadership on this front.

“I look forward to reviewing the rest of the Commission’s recommendations as we prepare for important work ahead.”
