U.S. military richly deserve not just the nation’s thanks, but, whenever possible, financial benefits from retirement pay to health care.

Wes Moore with a costly proposal, the Keep Our Heroes Home Act, that would further reduce taxes on military pensions — for individuals as young as 37 years old.
