What began as a great idea is slowly becoming the latest rave for Veterans across the United States. Many veterans who have dutifully served their country are tired of long waits, long lines, slow response, and poor facility conditions of the Veterans Administration Hospitals nationwide.
America’s weary soldiers are so tired of less-than-adequate treatment, that a few have decided to band together and do what they do best…MARCH! Where are they marching? Well, on Washington of course. There is already a group on Facebook, and the response has been so overwhelming that a website is under construction.
All they need now is 1,000,000 marching veterans.
Based on the huge number of veterans using the VA system as their sole source of healthcare, getting a million to march shouldn’t be a problem. Here is what the organizers have to say,
“The march on the VA has been created by and for all honorably discharged Veterans and their family’s. This organization represents Veterans from all branches and all wars.
According to the VA there are currently 2.9 million disabled veterans. It is time they hear us loud and clear, we will no longer be pushed aside and ignored. It is time we stand up for ourselves and sound off. We are 1st class citizens and we will no longer be treated like trash.
The VA counts on us to give up and for the most part many of us have. Well that is over with, it is time we start making some demands and letting the VA know we are not going to give up, we will not quit, we will not surrender, This is a fight for ourselves and our family’s.
We will no longer be complacent in this we have a voice and we will use it. This a grass root effort, so please do all you can in the way of spreading the word. The tentative date for the march is October 4, 2012.” Ask to “Join the group” and support Veterans for better VA healthcare!
