Veterans For Peace has helped me deliver phone cards to VA hospital patients (overall nationally 54,000 in 148 facilities), help 87,000 stoplossed troops get another year to claim their back pay, help 98,000 military spouse students restore their college funds, let me contribute to their Iraqi water Project (helping 85,000 Iraqis get safe drinking water, help pass NY Guard health coverage for depleted uranium (the "new Agent Orange"), tell the VA about 4000 support groups that can help w/PTSD, proving peace patriotic by honoring the warrior not the war. One of our chapter's members, Miles Manchester, arranged PTSD training for every police agency near the home of the Army's most deployed division. VFP supports schools and clinics in Vietnam & Afghanistan. A fellow member and I are about to do a YouTube video motivating veterans to get help for their PTSD, using quotes of mine successfully "field-tested"by 400 families living w/PTSD in Nebraska.
