We Can Thank Veterans by Helping to Protect Their Benefits

dav_dava_bigger

If you have not already done so, would you please take a moment today to help protect veterans’ benefits! Sign our online petition here to support the passage of the Putting Veterans Funding First Act (S. 932 / H.R. 813). This bill will shield all veterans’ benefits, services and programs from partisan politics and government shutdowns by fully funding the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) budget before the beginning of each year. If you have already done so, you could forward this to a family member or friend to encourage them to sign the petition as well.

Next week, DAV and other VSO leaders will go to Capitol Hill. We need your voice to make an impact. We’ll be knocking on doors and requesting meetings with key Congressional Lawmakers to push for passage of the Putting Veterans Funding First Act. This petition is your voice and your chance to support this bill. Sign the petition now!

In just five days, more than 10,000 people have signed the petition. Please join with them to help make sure veterans do not become victims of Capitol Hill inaction or government shutdowns. Congress must act by year-end, timing is running out.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
