Something That Actually Is Important...

At least, if you're a veteran of the Iraq or Afghanistan campaigns who was retained in the service by means of the "stop-loss" process, this is potentially important. Phoenix Woman explains at FireDogLake:
The 2009 War Supplemental Appropriations Act established Retroactive Stop Loss Special Pay (RSLSP), providing $500 for each month/partial month served in stop loss status from September 11, 2001 through September 30, 2009. Being in "stop loss" status meant that the affected troop could not leave active service when his or her tour of duty ended. This typically extended tours of duty by several months for each troop affected.

If you're a veteran to whom this applies and hadn't heard about this, I suggest visiting that link for more information, including the contact information for your branch of service.

UPDATE: This is something Earthbound Misfit noted that I didn't - the deadline to apply is October 21, 2010.
