For those keeping tabs on my previous post regarding the year-long story of the military budget approval, I Just decided to get straight to the dirt here:
The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 was passed by Congress and has been sent to the President for signature. Touted as the largest Defense budget since WWII, the bill authorizes $725 billion for fiscal year 2011. The bill covers virtually every aspect of military spending including authorization for expanding TRICARE coverage to include dependents up to age 26, TRICARE fee protection, family support and care giver programs and a 1.4 percent increase in military pay.

Here is a handy link to the DFAS website for military pay, where they have a customer service number to call as well. http://www.dfas.mil/militarypay.html
