Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (http://www.dvnf.org ), a non-profit veterans service organization that focuses on helping men and women who serve and return home wounded or sick after defending our safety and our freedom, is asking the 112th Congress to remember Veterans as they look to finish their legislative business before they adjourn until after the November elections.
DVNF supports groups such as the VFW who are urging Congress to not forget critical funding support for veteran and their families as tough Budget choices loom on the legislative horizon (http://www.vfw.org ). Specifically the VFW recently raised the following issues in Washington, DC; Budget: Should sequestration occur, the impact across-the-board cuts could have on Department of Veterans Affairs administrative accounts, and Defense Department readiness and Quality of Life programs.
Healthcare: Combating military and veteran suicides, ensuring the VA continues to improve access and services to women veterans, and stopping the Pentagon from arbitrarily raising TRICARE fees and copayments on military families and retirees.
Benefits Delivery: Creating a fully electronic claims and evaluation system that is based more on quality rating decisions than quantity.
Education and Employment: Enhancing and protecting the GI Bill, transition assistance, licensing and certification portability, employer tax credits, enforcing Guard and Reservist reemployment rights, veteran employment and training, and federal contracting with veteran-owned businesses.
Also, the DVNF is saluting this month the 83,000 Americans currently listed as missing and unaccounted for, dating back to World War II.
