500,000 Disabled Military Retirees need your help. We are the last retirees who are still being forced by Congress to forfeit $1 of our earned military retirement for every $1 we receive in Veterans Disability Compensation. Congress is in the process of passing the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act. This is the single bill which can put an end to this despicable practice.

      Retired wounded warriors who have served their country with battle scares that some of us can’t even see should never feel the price they paid for our freedom should ever be made to pay a second time with their retirement.

      People EARNED their retirement for years of dedicated service. While in the process of defending the United States they were hurt in some way, shape or form. Disability should be seperate from the retirement earned. These veterans earned there disability as well as their retirement.

      My brother and I joined the Army together we put our lives on the line everyday. My brother was discharged for PTSD. Go figure he did over 25 tours in combat. He never said no. Now he is by the wayside. What happen to protecting our men and women who our countryt put in harms way? If you wont protect them and take care of them go fight your

      own dam wars .
