Disabled Veterans & Gold Star Families Commissary and Exchange Store Benefits Act - Permits a veteran with any compensable service-connected disability (and the veteran's dependants) to include Gold Star Families to use commissary and exchange stores on the same basis as a member of the Armed Forces entitled to retired or retainer pay.
We can not afford to have this Bill once again die after is it placed into the Subcommittee for Military Pers. Each time it goes there it's forgotten. I urge all Disabled Vets to write your Congressman, Senators, leaders of the FRA, VFW, and American Legion etc. Many voices will be heard. Google House of representatives if unsure where to get the information.
See H.R 1178, There are 60 members on the House Committee on Armed Services. Make it a point to contact one of them and urge the importance of this Bill. GovTrack.us is another good site for locating current status & info.
This bill costs the public $0.00 and increases MWR funds due to increased participation. and will eventually lower prices due to increased buying power.
During these hard times it would be beneficial to our many Disabled Veterans, especially those who are unemployed or in retraining programs.
We the undersigned call on the Armed Services Committee recommend for a resolution to vote for H.R 1178 to amend title 10, United States Code, to extend military commissary and exchange store privileges to veterans with a compensable service-connected disability and to their dependants, to include Gold Star (immediate) Families.
The Support Disabled Veterans and Gold Star Families Privileges petition to Congressman Rob Bishop (R) UT was written by Kooter and is in the category Military at GoPetition.
