TAKE CARE OF OUR VETERANS & DON'T USE THEM AS POLITICAL PAWNS!
Our military veterans are too important - we can't allow political games to interfere with the benefits they deserve, which they earned with sweat and blood spilled defending this nation. With the so-called "government shut-down" our sick or wounded veterans in need of care and benefits are being threatened!
Lawmakers have the power to pass funding JUST FOR OUR VETS, as they have already done for active duty military, but some are unwilling!
Many of our veterans have been handicapped or their families have made the ultimate sacrifice defending America and rely on these benefits to live and support their families.
Our veterans need your IMMEDIATE support:
1. Sign our Petition telling Congress to support our veterans and stop using them as political pawns.
2. Forward this email to as many people as you know and ask them to sign - - our strength is in numbers!
Don't use our veterans and political pawns!
Veterans risked their lives to protect our country and many have paid dearly and sacrificed greatly. Many have lost limbs and have been severely injured fighting our enemies and protecting our country. Unable to work many veterans rely on these checks to survive and support their families. Many of our VA hospitals are housing veterans that are recovering from battlefield injuries and we can't kick them out on the streets.
Today's politicians need to take a lesson from George Washington when he said "The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by our nation."
Demand your elected official to take care of our Veterans.
