The Issue

National Guard servicemembers have deployed under U.S.C Title 10, Section 12304b orders since 2012 for pre-planned missions in support of Combatant Commands, but are not authorized to receive the same benefits provided under other overseas mobilization authorities.

Accomplishment

The Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) authorizes High Deployment Allowance accrual for all reserve romponent servicemembers, as well as non-reduction in pay protections for reserve component servicemembers who are also federal employees, serving under U.S.C. Title 10, Section 12304b orders.
