    This is a benefit that is long over due. I am currently 60\% disabled and to have a benefit to use the BX or Commissary would be overwhelmingly appreciated.

    To have a bill such as this lingering this amount of time is not serving any purpose. There is no cost to the Government for the introduction of this bill, if anything it would help the commissary program as a whole
