Get returning vets the care they deserve and #EndTheVABacklog


Hello Cause Community, I saw this petition about disability benefits for veterans and wanted to enlist your support to help the campaign. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) were created to fill the gaps in loss of earnings potential and quality of life caused by injuries during military service. But sadly, there are currently hundreds of thousands of returning veterans who are waiting unacceptably long periods of time for their VA claims to be processed. This is unacceptable and IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America) is organizing a campaign to call on President Obama to appoint a Presidential Commission to end the VA backlog! Help this campaign by signing the petition today.
