Veterans Raise Your Voices! Together We Will

Be Heard!!!


All veterans deserve equal treatment under the law, It’s not happening!

Many veterans who have honorably served at the behest of the nation, settle outside or on the fringes of the continental United States. They do so for many reasons, sometimes cultural or economic, but most often so they can care for family; wives, parents, children and other blood relatives. Often these Veterans are the Sole source of care and income for these families.

In the Caribbean basin in order for entitled dependents or Veterans to receive comprehensive medical care they are required to fly to Puerto Rico. This is done without reimbursement for the costs of travel. Within the continental United States and in certain locations world-wide, Veterans are reimbursed for this travel. The question that begs to be answered is why it is not the same for Veterans regardless of where they reside?

Entitled Veterans and their families residing in the Dominican Republic are also required to fly to Puerto Rico for comprehensive care. They are not reimbursed for travel and as a result often wait until they are critically ill before making the journey. The alternative to reimbursement is for the VA to partner with local Dominican Treatment facilities and create satellite clinics that allow Veterans to seek care closer to home. In the absence of VA covered health care, at the very least Veterans deserve the same consideration under the law that Veterans elsewhere receive. Reimbursement!

Please join with me in trying to make a difference. Please add your name and your voice to mine so that we can convince the government and the Veterans Administration to offer equal consideration under the law. Help me to fight for the rights of Veterans and equitable treatment. So that the Veterans Administration will, in the words of President Abraham Lincoln “care for him (or her) who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan” by serving and honoring the men and women who are America’s Veterans.
