Speaking of not to forget– the bill for the increase funding was approved by the Senate Armed Forces Committee- T.B.I. – Traumatic Brain Injury, PTSD – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, s for the Wounded Warriors of the Iraq war (what about those in O.E.F.??–in Afghanistan??? what about our Veterans who have suffered and need help –this bill goes to the Senate now. (included in this bill-taking from the monies allotted–is for military base construction).
