Our Friends at FRA need our help!

This message just in from the great folks at the Fleet Reserve Association:

Pay Military Death Benefits Now!!!
Tell the Senate to Pass H. J. Res. 91 now!

The Pentagon is not paying military death benefits to families of those who have made the ultimate sacrfice in defense of our nation. This delay violates the solenm vow that this nation  take care of the families of those men and women in uniform who have been killed fighting the war on terror. The House unanimously passed (425-0) a measure (H.J. Res. 91) to require the the Pentagon to these benefits immediately. Please use the Action Center to tell your Senators to approve this measure and tell the President to sign it into law immediately. 

Let us honor this request from John Davis, FRA Director of Legislative Programs

Feel free to unload on them...they've apparently turned a blind eye to the needs of the people. 

Thanks Shipmates! 


”It is a stain on this nation's honor that the Department of Veterans Affairs has become a deadlier and more difficult adversary to the American veteran than any they have ever faced on a battlefield."-- VNVets

"The concept that Agent Orange, and its effects, stopped dead in its tracks at the shoreline is simply too illogical, and too ludicrous to accept. What does that say about the Obama Administration and his Department of Veterans Affairs?"--VNVets

"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan--to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." --President Abraham Lincoln

"It follows then as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious."--President George Washington
