Goal: 20,000 Progress: 7,737
Sponsored by: The Veterans Site

When it comes to America's veterans, there is no excuse for not providing the benefits they deserve in a timely manner. Snowstorms and other bad weather often cause the VA to stall on paying veterans' benefits, leaving countless former service members without the funding and assistance they need to survive.

Paperwork processing centers close down when severe weather takes place, and consequently our veterans are left stranded. Those who have sacrificed their lives for our country shouldn't have to bear the brunt of storms or other disasters — these processing centers need to find more efficient ways to continue doing business rather than simply shut down. Our veterans didn't have that option.

Write to House Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairperson asking him to support legislation that would prohibit veteran benefit processing centers from evading their important duties in the event of storms and other unplanned incidents.

Dear House Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairperson:

I think it's outrageous that any veteran would have to wait for their benefit payments due to a snowstorm or other weather disaster. The fact is, when bad weather occurs, veteran benefit processing centers often close down. This means that veterans don't get their payments until the weather subsides and the workers return to the office.

This way of doing business seems highly flawed. When our soldiers were out in the rain, snow, or scorching heat, they weren't able to "close down shop" and go home. They stayed out on the front lines, in whatever conditions, laying down their lives for our country. There is simply no reason that something as common as bad weather should prevent them from receiving the benefits they've earned.

I am writing to ask that you draft and/or support legislation that will prohibit these processing centers from shirking their duties due to weather conditions. There is no excuse for failing to provide our veterans with the care they deserve.
