John R. Davis ’78

John R. Davis ’78 is director of legislative programs for the Fleet Reserve Association, which represents enlisted members of the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

The association protects the pay and benefits of service members and their families. Davis appeared before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense this past summer to voice concern about adequate funding of the military health care system.

He supports active duty/reservist pay increases on par with civilian pay increases, a seamless transition for disabled veterans transferring to Veterans Affairs healthcare systems, and retroactive early retirement benefits for reservists frequently mobilized since 9/11.
