Honor Every Promise Made to Our Veterans!
On this issue, there can be no compromise; no argument based on party or politics or the changing winds that affect our lives and our nation from era to era. Millions of America's finest young men and women have placed life and limb in harms way to protect the liberty we cherish more than anything - and yet our Federal Government has failed to honor its commitment to them when they swore an oath to protect this Republic. On this issue, Up With America not only stands firm and strong, but places the immediate enactment of legislation and/or a Constitutional Amendment if necessary above and before all other solutions. No taxation tug-of-wars, no across-the-board spending cuts, no “sequestrations” shall deter us.
The men and women who are defending us from harm today, and those who have defended us in the past, and the families of those men and women who have sometimes paid the ultimate price to protect us and defend mankind’s right to liberty, must never be made to want or wait or wonder. The commitments we
have made to them for their health and financial care are unbreakable. ANY attempt by elected officials or bureaucrats to slow, restrict, reduce or deny them their just rewards must be met with swift and unanimous rejection by the American people.
As important, Up With America strongly supports one of the very finest organizations in the nation, Operation First Response. Since the beginning of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2001 and Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, more than 51,500 American soldiers have been wounded and 6,756 have been killed. This remarkable organization supports our nation’s Wounded Heroes and their families with personal and financial needs. Services are provided from the onset of injury, throughout their recovery period and along their journey from military life into the civilian world. Financial aid varies as each case is based on individual needs ranging from rent, utilities, vehicle payments, groceries, clothing, and travel expenses. And unlike many "so-called" veterans support groups, more than 90% of all monies raised go directly to help the families of our American hereos.
