FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (25)
Willie Nelson Approves OFFE Billboard Project!
Operation Firing For Effect is confident that we can rally this country’s military families in a massive show of Solidarity in 2008. Retired military families nationwide are facing high increases in their TriCare cost (for their earned ‘free’ lifetime healthcare), and VA hospitals are reducing services and additional facility closures are scheduled. Veterans from across the entire spectrum of military service are being affected. From the negative effects of BRAC base closures on our retired military families, to critically ill veterans being told to call 911 rather than going to a VA hospital, the veterans are rapidly losing their healthcare coverage. Meanwhile, deployed Reservist and National Guard troops are having their combat tours extended, while suicide, divorce, and homelessness among former military personnel have reached an epidemic high. The time has come for our veterans and their families to stand up and be heard. If we expect our young people to willingly volunteer their lives and health in the service of our country, we must be willing to stand up for the improvement and protection of the benefits and entitlements we have promised them. Most experts agree that it is this ‘group’, the veterans currently enrolled in the Department of Veterans Affairs healthcare system that will be the future foundation on which a nationwide healthcare system is to be modeled.
OFFE is confident that Mr. Willie Nelson’s endorsement of our 2008 Crusade for Veteran’s Healthcare will inspire military families to turn out and vote in record numbers. This year is a genuine opportunity for our military families to be heard, before we give our politicians our votes in November. Don’t let this opportunity to show your unified unconditional support for our troops slip away! Get involved now!
