The Commission is conducting public hearings and town halls across the United States in order to solicit comments on the modernization of the military compensation and retirement systems. The Commission seeks the views of service members, retirees, their families and other interested parties regarding pay, retirement, health benefits and quality of life programs of the Uniformed Services. The Commission will hear from senior commanders of local military commands and their senior enlisted advisors, unit commanders and their family support groups, local medical and education community representatives, and other quality of life organizations. Meeting sites will be accessible to members of the general public including individuals with disabilities.

On March 26, 2014, the Commission will hold public hearings from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

The hearings will consist of the following:

The public hearings will be transcribed and placed on the Commission's Web site. In addition to public hearings, and due to the essential need for input from the beneficiaries, the Commission is accepting and strongly encourages comments and other submissions on its Web site (www.mcrmc.gov).
