Troops are set to get their biggest pay raise in years under the final version of Congress' annual defense policy bill unveiled Tuesday, which was passed by the house on Friday. The 2.1 percent increase included in the National Defense Authorization Act would break a five-year trend of raises that have fallen below the private sector. The higher pay would go into effect Jan. 1. The 2017 NDAA now goes back to the Senate, and if passed, will be off to the President for signature.
