1,004 short of 20,000 before 4th year Anniversary

Over 63% of those who responded to the 2007 Help Our Heroes Survey said that reducing the extended waits for VA medical care should be Congress’ top priority for our veterans in 2007.

The VA backlog is at an all time high – over 800,000 cases – which means extended waits for healthcare and benefits. We can’t stand by and let our newest veterans struggle to survive after they leave the battlefield. Those 800,000 cases represent real people — veterans who’ve served our country and their families — who need our help and are not getting it.

We need to reduce the VA backlog and extended waits for healthcare NOW.That’s why we are conducting the 2007 Help Our Heroes Petition. Now is the time to remind our leaders in Washington to keep their promises to care for our troops and veterans on the battlefield and when they return.

Please add your name now. The more signatures we have, the more powerful the message we will be sending our leaders.

PLEASE CLICK ON THIS LINK TO SIGN PETITION

http://donate.vfw.org/site/R?i=dgKjhNoAy8vx1zjb8fSx5w..

We want to deliver the petition to our leaders on March 20th, the 4th Anniversary of the war in Iraq, so we need all signatures by March 6th.

Let’s honor the sacrifice of our troops and veterans by holding our leaders to the promise they made to our defenders. The promise to care for them and their families in return for their brave service.

Please sign the petition today!

Our goal is to gather 20,000 signatures so please forward this email to your family, friends and co-workers. Ask them to join you in demanding veterans’ issues are a top priority in 2007.

We only have six days left to reach our goal of delivering 20,000 petition signatures to our leaders in Washington by March 20th, the 4th Anniversary of the war in Iraq. In order to deliver the petition on the 20th, we need all signatures by March 6th.

We are only 1,004 signatures away from reaching our goal. Can you please give us one more little push to help us get there?
