The deal struck Tuesday by Budget Committee leaders would give the Pentagon $22 billion in sequester relief in fiscal 2014.
While the budget deal provides some sequester relief for the military that Pentagon leaders have clamored for, it does not raise spending back up to pre-sequester funding levels.
In all, the agreement will increase defense spending by $31.7 billion above the sequestration caps over the next two years, with an equal amount of relief going to non-defense discretionary spending.
Members of the military would help pay for the boost in spending.
A summary of the agreement says that veterans under the age of 62 will have to pay more into their retirement accounts.
The agreement modifies the annual cost-of-living adjustment for working-age military retirees to inflation minus 1 percent, a change that will gradually be phased in over the next three years.
