Our leaders in Congress are actually considering cutting 10 critical benefits that affect our nation’s service members, veterans and their families. VFW is calling it the “10 for 10” plan—cutting 10 benefits to pay for 10 years of war. Read more about it.
We can’t let this happen! VFW needs you to sign this important petition. We’ll let Congress know we have an army of patriots behind us who won’t let them level unjust funding cuts on our defenders and their families!
America’s debt crisis calls for tough decisions. That’s a given. But there is no way we’ll allow them to make budget cuts on the backs of our veterans.
You can also help by getting your Facebook friendsinvolved! We need every patriot to stand up and be heard!
Update..11/17/11..Colbert Nation: “The Word”… Steven Colbert’s satire is spot on. Congress demands more sacrfice from our Veterans, our Service men/women…Spot on…
From Ron Fox, friend and Vietnam veteran: To my brothers and sisters who served with me. This is very moving and reminds me of how proud I am of all of you that served with me in that far off distant place that lives in our hearts and minds. This film is worth seeing over and over again. This is a video made by and for Michigan Vietnam Veterans, but I believe all of you should appreciate this. http://www.v-prod.com/trailer_vietnam.html

On Monday, February 14th join us in an outreach movement to send a message to the White House:
(from the Wounded Warrior site): Visit the White House’s Facebook page and leave a comment, demanding that they direct implementation of this support NOW! To leave a comment, you’ll have to click the button to “like” the White House. If you’re not a fan, you can always “unlike” it after leaving your comment.
Suggested post: Mr. President, last May, you signed legislation directing the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide comprehensive support to wounded warriors’ family-caregivers. Under that law, families should be getting those needed services by now, but VA help seems still a year away. Mr. President, please cut through the red tape and direct implementation NOW! The families have already sacrificed so much!
Promises, but still no help, for those caring for wounded vets
