I believe that veterans in general, and especially those who have fought for their country, should be entitled to lifetime healthcare. Likewise, veterans who are disabled as a result of battle, should receive an inflation proof pension. On the other hand, I believe that government employees should be in defined contribution plans, just like regular citizens. My primary reason for saying this is that it may cost them something to contribute to a 401k, but they'll own the investments, whereas a rich pension promise can blow up in their faces.
