Support the Troops by Demanding Better Veteran Care!

I just read this heartbreaking article in Newsweek about veteran care (or lack thereof) by the Veterans Administration. As the former wife of a Vietnam veteran, I know the difficulty he went through when trying to obtain benefits; he was told that he was classified as a "peacetime" veteran because he served in the U.S. Navy on a destroyer, even though he saw plenty of combat. I'm hoping that presidential candidates like mine will make this a topic at the forefront of their campaigns; in the meantime, I urge you to send this link with a note to your senator and representative demanding immediate action on this issue if they expect your vote the next time around. That's what "Support the Troops" REALLY means!

Click here for the article in Newsweek.

I copied and pasted this link in my communications with Senator Dole and Burr:

Glad you joined us

I rec'd my magazine on Tuesday, but haven't read the article yet. Will have to do so.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.
