Veterans Bill of Rights

From the blog page on

  • Governor Huckabee wants your feedback. We encourage you to leave a comment on his Veterans' Bill of Rights:
    I support the following VETERANS' BILL OF RIGHTS for issues that are not being adequately addressed: The right to a mandatory rather than a discretionary mechanism for funding veterans' health care, to eliminate year-to-year uncertainty that the funds they need will be there for them The right to obtain full and clear explanation of all benefits and comprehensive assistance in obtaining those benefits. The right to have a claim processed within six months. The right to the fullest possible accounting of the fate of POW/MIAs and the right to be designated as POW/MIA. The right to access state-of-the-art treatment facilities for traumatic brain injuries. The right of National Guard and Reserve personnel called to active service to receive the same benefits as active duty veterans. The right of disabled veterans to receive both their military retirement and VA compensation. The right of wounded Reserve troops to be treated like their active duty counterparts until their claims have been processed. The right of wounded veterans and those who have served in combat theaters to a comprehensive GI bill that provides full tuition, books, fees, and living expenses at any institution to which the veteran is accepted.
