Defense Bill Sets Up New Maternity Uniform Loan Program for Pregnant Troops

Soon-to-be moms in the military could receive free loaner maternity uniforms if next year’s defense policy bill becomes law.

In the final version of the fiscal 2021 National Defense Authorization Act released last week, lawmakers are pushing the Defense Department to conduct a pilot program to issue maternity uniforms and related items to pregnant military members on a temporary and as-needed basis.
