It takes a special kind of person to put on the uniform and dedicate their life to serving our country. We should support that calling, not make it harder. That’s why I introduced H.R. 3046 to expand service eligibility to reserve physicians or reserve chaplains beyond the age of 68.
Under current law, active-duty military physicians are eligible to serve beyond the “mandatory retirement age” of 68 if they are deemed “necessary for the needs of the military department concerned.” This bill, which was signed into law in December 2019, expands this waiver to any reserve physicians or reserve chaplains who meet this same criteria already in place for active-duty servicemembers.
