I hope this bill passes. As it stands right now on the National Guard mandatory retirement age is 60. When a dual status member reaches the age of 60 the dual status member loses his/her military membership followed by losing his full time job due to military retirement then has to fine other work which makes it hard to fine other work due to the member age. By going title 5 the dual status member retires from the National Guard with no impact to his full time job and current readiness level is maintain with no impact to the mission.

Repealing this act would endanger many technicians jobs, going to title 5 would be a benefit the CIV workforce, securing the future of technicians everywhere. I myself am loosing my job due to being medically retired form the National Guard, I love what I do and don't think I will find a greater workplace then where I am today!

This would give parity to federal employees, it would retain experience and skill to allow the guard to better respond to state emergencies.

Title 5 works for other branches of service and they still maintain their readiness standards, the National Guard should be the same. To many technicians on dual status get removed from tech status prior to retirement age or 20yrs of technician service due military related issues and then have no retirement to job in the civilian sector because of the dual status program.

10 yrs as a dual status tech and I am looking at medical retirement from the guard. The title 5 conversion would save my civilian job.

I'm so fed up with Congress making these issues so complicated and tied up with other issues so this or that group can slip something by!!!! This is a yes or no issue!!! No !!! These technician's jobs shouldn't be changed from 32-5!!!

I accepted a technician job after being laid-off and I love my new job. However, I also have 17 years in the military prior to starting as a technician. I don't feel it's fair I have to serve another 20 to 30 years just to provide services for a job that has nothing to do with my military responsibilities. I don't think my body could handle another 20 years either. But I am good at my job and am fully capable if doing it and don't think it's fair I lose my job and family's livelihood if I am QRB'd out. I should not be punished after serving for such a long time. Therefore, I fully support this conversion so I can continue to serve.
