Disable American Veterans "Virtual March" 15 Sept.

Discussion in 'US' started by Virgil, Sep 15, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. For those interested there's a 'virtual march' by the DAV (Disabled American Vets) scheduled for Tuesday, September 15 (Today for most of you).


    Who: Anyone who cares about veterans and their families
    What: An online event that will show lawmakers that voters care about veterans
    Where: Online only, at http://www.dav.org/virtualmarch
    When: The "march" starts Sept. 15 but will remain online indefinitely for those who cannot get online then
    Why: Veterans are still facing long waits for benefits, VA's medical system is working with unpredictable funding, and veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are suffering from alleged toxic fumes, among many other issues

    On Sept. 15, we will make history with the first-ever virtual march for disabled veterans. And we look forward to you taking part.

    You won’t need to travel to participate. You won’t need to spend any money to have your voice heard. You don’t even have to be online the day of the march, so no need to check your calendar. The DAV is working to ensure this will be the easiest and most convenient way ever to stand up for veterans.

    With this march, you will support those who came back from war missing a limb, paralyzed, unable to see, terribly sick or otherwise disabled. They put their country – our country – before themselves. They gave so much, and now they need you to stand up for them.
