Why this petition matters
Active duty veterans and retirees receive full medical benefits from the VA administration. Retirees also receive Tri-Care medical benefits.
Any person who was in the Reserves or National Guard with less than 20 years get NO BENEFITS whatsoever. If reservist or National Guard members were never called up to active duty for more than 90 days, they are not qualified to receive any Veteran Administration benefits. Most who were called to active duty were sent home prior to the 89th day to prevent them from being classified ACTIVE.
This is a disgrace to those personnel, several who have no medical benefits or need help with housing, food, family and many other issues. Several are homeless and could use and would like help from the VA but are denied.
Most all Veteran organizations agree that all should receive Veteran Benefits from the VA regardless of status as long as they have an honorable discharge. We are asking to get at least 50,000 signatures within 30 days to get this to the White House. President Biden is a huge supporter of the military and veterans. We would like to have over one million signatures if possible as this would be sure to get the attention of the President and both parties in both houses.
Please, help all veterans not just those that were active duty. God Bless our military and veterans and God Bless our great nation.
