Brothers & Sisters: Military 'Sole Survivors' Bill Goes to Bush

Brothers & Sisters: Military 'Sole Survivors' Bill Goes to Bush

Click to Read

Brothers & Sisters: Military "Sole Survivors" Bill Goes to Bush Legislation to ensure veterans benefits to "sole survivors" in military families passed the Senate on Friday. It now goes to President Bush, who is expected to sign it. The bill is called the "Hubbard Act" after a family lost two of three sons in the Iraq war. After the combat deaths of his two brothers, Jason Hubbard left the Army under the military's "sole survivor" policy, which allows sole surviving siblings to be discharged before their enlistment period is over.

Hmmm. This is interesting. What if you're an only child?

I didn't know this was still practiced. I know it was pretty common "back in the day" when families needed at least some of their kids to, you know, harvest or something. Is it really only if you're the sole survivor? If there are three in the service, and one dies, do the other two have the option to discharge or at least take leave?
