It’s Veterans Day and Our Vets Desperately Need Our Help

(Before It's News)

Fellow American,

Today is Veterans Day, a day dedicated to honoring all those who have ever put on the uniform to defend this great country and its freedoms.

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, the guns fell silent over Europe. The “Great War” was over. Since then, we have dedicated this day to celebrating all of our veterans.

But as you know, there is still much work to be done. Our veterans have been left behind and continue to commit suicide at a rate of over 20 suicides a day.

We have a mandate for real change at the VA but we cannot afford to wait 69 days for President-elect Trump's inauguration. In that time, almost 1,400 veterans will have committed suicide. Countless others will have passed away from treatable conditions.

The mandate is clear. But we need to hit the ground running!

No more games! Send your FaxBlast to Congress and DEMAND that they prepare VA reform legislation to be signed on Day 1 of Donald Trump’s Presidency!

Over the past 3 years, we have focused heavily on the plight facing the American veteran and serviceman. And now it is time to take it across the finish line.

Veterans are dying every day because they are just not getting the care they deserve, either mentally, physically, or both.

We have covered the veterans committing suicide outside of VA hospitals after they were turned away for the umpteenth time… We have covered the deceased heroes who were left to rot in the VA’s morgue because employees couldn’t be bothered to give them a burial… We have covered the veterans who committed suicide after the VA’s suicide hotline told them to call back later…

This election was about giving a voice to the “forgotten man” in this country and there has been no one more forgotten during the Obama Presidency than the American veteran. That is a fact and that is why Donald Trump won 61% of the military vote.

We have two choices on this Veterans Day.

We can either sit back and wait 69 days before taking action on this, letting thousands of veterans die in the meantime, or we can go to work now and make sure that on day one, there is a legitimate VA reform bill on Donald Trump’s desk.

I choose the latter because our veterans deserve it. Please join me.

No more waiting. Please send your FaxBlast to Congress now and DEMAND that they begin overhauling the VA immediately!

They deserve better,

Joe Otto
