More research needed for Veteran illnesses

By Remy Benoit

From Kimberly Hefling, AP, at Veterans for Common Sense Gulf War News: VA Research Panel Recommends More Research for Illnesses Impacting up to 210,000 Veterans.

President-elect Obama has asked for us to work with his administration to right what is wrong in our country. Too many of our Veterans are not getting the attention they need, and earned. It will take a collective grass roots movement of our demands to right this wrong. Use your voice—loud and clear to support, truly support, our Veterans. Contact President-elect Obama.

For those of you coming home, this is a book that can help you—I know it says so much that you need to hear as I did the editing for it. You will hear the voices of many Vets who have already gone through what you are going through now. The author, Britta Reque-Dragicevic, covered post war Sarjevo as an AP reporter, thus she knows what war can do.Close to Home: A Soldier's Guide to Returning from War. Join Britta, John Cory, me, and so many others who want you to know you are welcomed home and we are all here for you.
