Veteran Family Health Care Plan

This petition had 1,255 supporters

In order to raise awareness and to help struggling and homeless veterans, we want to advocate for change within the United States government and in Congress. We have a responsibility to help veterans because they served for this country and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Although many veterans can already apply for certain health care benefits, we want to focus on trying to extend healthcare benefits to family members. In some rare cases, family members can receive care, like couples mental health counseling, but it is not normal for this to happen. Extending care to every family member may not be necessary in every case, but there are many justifiable ones. For example, we want to extend healthcare benefits to close family members of a female veteran who is a single mother and is disabled due to mental and/or physical injuries she sustained during her time in the military. If she is disabled and unable to work, then it would be justifiable if not only her health benefits be covered, but also her family's. While we may only be advocating for change on a local level, we hope this raises awareness for our issue in order to pass laws in other states and in other countries where veterans are suffering from homelessness or mental and physical health issues and their immediate family cannot receive health care. Please consider signing in order to help our cause!!! :)
