Whereas, as a patriotic American I believe it is a national disgrace to allow our courageous military veterans – who survived foreign enemies on the battlefield – to simply die here at home from neglect while awaiting medical treatment;

Therefore, I join with the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes in demanding my elected officials do everything in their power to end this crisis – quickly and permanently – and start treating our beloved veterans with the care, respect and honor they deserve.

Yes, I'm willing to do one more thing to help our ailing veterans! As a faithful Coalition supporter I know troops severely disabled in the war on terrorism are also in desperate need for emergency financial aid. Because of the long wait for government disability many military families are unable to pay for food, rent and other necessities and their families are suffering as a result.
