From Tom Tarantino of IAVA.ORG

Can you help us gather 7,000 signatures by next Saturday?

Last month's Storm the Hill trip was the first step towards getting disability reform passed this year, so that vets don't have to fight for their benefits. Now, it's time to take the next step, and build momentum for this long-overdue fight.

We're urging members of Congress to sign on to support disability reform. Their support is crucial to winning this fight, but yours is even more important. Can you take a minute to add your name to our open letter?

Our goal is to gather 7,000 signatures in support of disability benefits reform before the 7th anniversary of the war in Iraq, next Saturday, March 20th.

Click here to add your name and show support for reforming the broken VA disability claims process.

There is no better way to honor the men and women who have bravely served our country than by ensuring they don't have to fight to receive the benefits they deserve.

Add your name here and help us make sure that veterans coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan get their benefits, not endless red tape.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Tom

Tom Tarantino
Legislative Associate
Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA)


**************************************


I don't ask much from my friends and family, so when I ask for some help, it's usually important. I care a great deal about the disabled veterans of this country, and your signature on this petition would mean a lot to me.

Thank you for your support.

I am with you all the way ED.
I do have a great idea, but it does have something to do with letting them keep their tools of war until benefits are given, you know, like collateral just in case they do not pay up in time. :winker
