Maryland Sens. Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin have introduced a bill to extend death benefits to ROTC members who die before they’re able to serve their first active duty assignment for the military.
The bill is in recognition of Lt. Richard W. Collins III, who was killed before he could serve his first assignment for the U.S. Army.
