C-123 Veterans Association Works Washington – One Last Trip

I spent a week working various issues with VA and Senate staffers, including a very special luncheon on December 15 in the nice house just over my shoulder.

Worked with law firms providing our pro bono legal assistance, plus ROA, NVLSP, DAV and other advocates, finishing just a day before VA announced its new Camp Lejeune water policy which, like the C-123 policy, denied Reservists retroactive compensation benefits.

I had the opportunity to make suggestions to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs:
a) utilize fire department and military medics for VA home health care visits.
b) VA should inform America's 20 million veterans of steps ordinary Americans can take to help oppose terrorism.
