VA Petition to Help Veterans

Today I would like to share a story with you about my clients Jack and Denise Randall, who have been impacted by Jack’s exposure to Agent Orange. If you feel compelled, I would like to ask you to click on the link to join them in this fight by signing their petition.

Did you know that if a soldier fights in a "secret" mission and he is hurt or affected from that mission he cannot receive the benefits he needs? The file is top secret therefore he was never there according to the VA. Jack Randall is a career officer in the Navy who did many tours in Viet Nam. After exposure to Agent Orange, Jack was diagnosed with dementia over ten years ago and it has destroyed his health. Denise, his wife, is a school teacher has been forced to quit her job so she can provide round the clock care for him. The VA will not help them with the benefits she needs to provide him appropriate care.

The Randall’s have presented a petition to The Arizona State House, The Arizona State Senate, Governor Jan Brewer, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says: "We are asking that in the case of veteran's benefits that all files be it top secret or otherwise be opened so the VA can correctly review the benefits needed by the soldier. This will prove the areas of the world where they worked and the possible effects of chemical warfare."

Each of us know someone who has selflessly dedicated their life to defend the freedoms we enjoy in this Country. It makes me sad to know this man, who spent his whole life in an active of service, is now being denied the care he needs. Will you sign the petition too? Click here to add your name.
