Elderly veterans should receive the care they need without having to fight for it. Take action for them now!
Many of America's elderly veterans are finding it more difficult to find and sustain housing and health care. The fact is our older veterans often have a much more difficult time because not only are they at times unaware of resources available to them, but also because the United States simply does not allocate enough funding and care toward caring for our elderly service members.
The bottom line is that no one who's served in the military — especially those who are elderly — should have to worry about health care, housing, or food. It's appalling that so many of our geriatric veterans are living without assistance.
Just the same as we're taking care of those who are just now returning from duty, we can't forget about the service elderly veterans once provided our country. Sign the petition asking Senator Johnny Isakson, Chairman of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, to concentrate more focus on caring for our older veterans.
Dear Senator Isakson,
I am writing to ask for your participation in creating programs and allocating funding toward taking care of our elderly veterans. The fact is, older veterans struggling more than they should have to in order to simply sustain health care or find suitable housing. That we as a country aren't removing these worries for our veterans completely is appalling.
Someone who has sacrificed so much for his or her country shouldn't be forced to worry about where the next meal will come from or how they are going to pay for their required prescriptions.
Please use your position as Chairman of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee to address the problem of elder veteran hunger, homelessness, and lack of health care. Do the right thing for those who have laid down their lives for our country.
Thank you for your time.
