Brendan Milczynski, a member of the Indiana National Guard, noticed a discrepancy in benefits for the staff members who serve his unit and those who serve Army Reserve units. In both the Guard and Reserve, some members are full-time staff who organize, administer, recruit and train guardsmen and reservists.

Until recently, Army Reserve staffers qualified for child care assistance, a benefit National Guard members could not receive due to a quirk in federal law.

Milczynski contacted U.S. Rep. Joe Donnelly, who asked the Department of Defense to review its policies. As a result, the Pentagon has extended child care assistance to full-time members of the Guard.
