Unfortunately another case of the Dept of Veterans \Affairs trying to play one group of combat
vets against another.
Just like they did the Viet Nam vets against Korea, WWII and any others that were still alive.
God, please hear our prayers and bring this country back to somewhat of a sensible action.
It is no longer whether you are a vet or not. It is a case of whether you are Democrat or Republican. And it does not matter
whether it stands for us supporting our country anymore. It now is what party do you belong to. Your action in Combat no longer
matters to the powers to be. Whether in the Dept of Veterans Affairs or in Congress. It no longer matters that you fought
for this country as an American. It seems to be politically correct that you are Democrat or Republican only.
May this make more sense to all that read it, and it still the same as what we couldn't

Many Thanks to Jim Davis/ Veterans for Change newsletter.
For the following info and links. Thanks Jim. Webmaster/VETSHELP!
NEW AGENT ORANGE rule Applies to 86,000 vets
In calculating VA costs from this change, VA assumes that 80 percent of the eligible population will apply for benefits and
100 percent of those who do will be approved. But eligible vets and survivors must file claims to get paid; nothing will happen
automatically. To file claims on line visit: http://vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp/main.asp. Veterans without a computer
can call a
toll-free helpline at (800) 749-8387.
VA maintains a directory of veterans' service organizations with trained staff
to help in filing claims. The Web site: http://www1.va.gov/vso/. Many state, county and local governments also
have personnel to help. Find information on these agencies at: http://www.va.gov/statedva.htm.
VA also expects many ineligible veterans
to file claims. They will be found ineligible because they can't show they ever set foot in Vietnam though they suffer from one of the qualifying diseases. Many claims will be filed
by veterans with hypertension but those will be rejected because that condition is not a "heart disease" under the VA draft
REPORT STOLEN VALOR
A violation of the Stolen Valor Act of 2005 is a federal misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in
prison and a $150,000 fine. Concerned citizens may report suspected cases of Stolen Valor to their local FBI field office
and the U. S. Department of Justice U.S. Attorney's Office.
The VA Office of Inspector General vigorously investigates cases of fraud perpetrated against VA
and operates a hotline for the public to confidentially and safely report crimes like Stolen Valor involving VA or its programs:
VA OIG HOTLINE
PO Box 50410
When Stolen Valor involves members of the military, the individual suspected of committing the fraud can be
reported directly to DOD law enforcement.
