Iraq/Afghanistan Vets: Dept of Defense Penalizing Wounded Veterans

Hey, the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America is doing a lot of heavy lifting for a lot of troops who are being abused by politicians in high office. For example, some wounded vets aren't getting their full enlistment bonuses:

Some of our injured troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are facing a ridiculous and unnecessary obstacle. Because they have been discharged early, they are not receiving their full enlistment bonuses. Some are even be asked to return payments they have already received.

A new bill that would ensure this does not continue is gaining momentum in Congress, and lawmakers need to hear from civilians who support it. We can help our nations' veterans on this critical issue.

Please take a minute to send a message to your representatives, and tell them you support this bill. Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America has made it easy - just visit the IAVA petition

If you really want to support the troops, this is a good way to start.
