We didn't quite meet our goal of $7,000, but that doesn't mean we stop. I’ll be honest, our 2019 goals are ambitious. We need to raise funds to ensure that we can be successful with our ambitious legislative agenda. Our plan is to work with legislators to close gaps in existing laws and create new ones, but we also want to educate those legislators that decide the fate of our soldiers.
Funds raised will go towards our planned 2019 symposium in Washington D.C. where we can sit down face-to-face with Members of Congress to educate them on our issues so that they know what’s at stake for our vets that suffer from the toxic wounds of war. I need your help. As the wife of a veteran suffering from burn pits exposure, I can't tell you how personal accomplishing this is for me. I see Le Roy suffering on a daily basis, and the constant battles he goes through to make it to each day, and there are thousands out there just like him.
