In Support of our Troops

To honour our second, third and fourth tour Afganistan Veterans: Did you know that our forces personnel only receive one medal for their first Tour of Afganistan Some veterans have seen two, three or four tours with a General Campaign Star or General Campaign Medal for their first tour only. These military men and women have placed their lives in grave danger during each deployment to AFGANISTAN. Recognition should be a Silver number 2, 3 or 4 added to their first "STAR or MEDAL Ribbons" and/or a "COMBAT BADGE" added to their uniform. The United Nations issues the appropriate numeral for tours of duty. Canada should do the same. We the undersigned feel this CAN be resolved immediately by our politicians.

    3 years ago Comments: Family Law lawyers, using the disguise of the Former Spouse Protection Act of 1982, have made a routine practice of lumping U.S. Military and Veterans Administration disability compensation into the definition of joint property in divorce cases - in DIRECT violation of the protection of said compensation by U.S. Code Title 38, Section 5301, The assault is compounded by divorce court judges who ignore the federal statute, in many cases stating, quote "I don't care what the federal government says, this is MY courtroom!" end quote. When this was brought to the attention of the U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs he basically brushed the assault aside, stating that the U.S. Congress had to take care of the matter, as he was not empowered to enforce the statute.
