The top two lawmakers on the House Armed Services Committee want to “significantly” increase service members’ pay and benefits as part of next year's defense spending bill.
Committee ranking member Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) said proposals to boost compensation and benefits for troops will be a top priority as he and Chairman Adam Smith (D-Wash.) put together the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in 2022.

WASHINGTON — The second highest ranking admiral in the Navy explained Wednesday what the service must do to prevent another major ship fire like the one aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard that gutted the amphibious assault ship last year in San Diego.
Adm. Bill Lescher, vice chief of naval operations, said the force must create “better mechanisms to recognize when our people need help or need intervention” with firefighter training after a report on the July 2020 fire released Wednesday found the Bonhomme Richard crew was unprepared to fight the flames.
