Do not forget the wounded warriors from Iraq and Afghanistan

Just heard the Wounded Warriors Project.

The Veterans Administration (VA) is too hastily discharging veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Too many vets are suffering from concussions and other head injuries, and from post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD). The process of getting designated with disability status is too cumbersome.

This veteran's day I'm sending my support by publicizing these links:
