Sen. Cruz Introduces Bill to Give Combat Pay for Soldiers “Fighting Ebola”

Senator Ted Cruz introduces bill to grant combat pay and status to those sent to Africa and risk their lives “fighting ebola”. “Any soldier who is subject to a 21 day quarantine, any soldier who is risking his or her life, his or her family’s life with a deadly, terrifying disease, is taking on a risk comparable to the risk of going to combat and risking an enemy bullet. Existing law doesn’t allow that. It is my hope that we’re going to see some bipartisan agreement in changing existing law so that we can recognize the sacrifices being made by the men and women in the military.” We agree with Sen. Cruz. Again.
