Revised law benefits military reservists.
After previously vetoing the National Defense Authorization Act, President Bush has signed a version after Congress revised the measure.
Under the revised law, members of the Ready Reserve can now get education expenses paid for by the federal government, and can qualify for maximum benefits after three cumulative years of service. Until now, they had to serve three years consecutively. The law also dictates that Selected Reserve members won't lose benefits if affected by base realignment and closure.
All reservists can now keep eligibility for a decade after leaving the military.
