It has been less than a year since the Uni-
formed Services Former Spouses' Protection
Act' took effect, legislatively overruling
McCarty v. McCarty,2 and Congressional action
has already begun to generate much judicial
and legislative activity.
In McCarty, the Supreme Court held that
Congress intended that a military retiree's pen-
sion be his or her separate property and not a
property interest subject to division upon disso-
lution of the retiree's marriage. Writing for the
majority, Justice Blackmun recognized the
hardship and inequity the decision would cause
for many former spouses of military retirees but
suggested that, in light of the legislative history
1pub. L. No. 97-252, Title X, §§ 1001-1006,96 Stat, 730 (Sept.
8, 1982), codified at 10 U.S.C.A. § 1408 (West 1983)[herein-
after cited as the Act].
2453 U.S. 210 (1981).
