Pres. Trump spends Thanksgiving in Afghanistan with the troops

Today, let’s forget politics!  This trip is a welcome morale booster for tomorrow’s veterans.

Presidential Proclamation on Thanksgiving Day, 2019–released 11/28/19.  (LINK)

….This Thanksgiving, we pause and acknowledge those who will have empty seats at their table.  We ask God to watch over our service members, especially those whose selfless commitment to serving our country and defending our sacred liberty has called them to duty overseas during the holiday season.  We also pray for our law enforcement officials and first responders as they carry out their duties to protect and serve our communities.  As a Nation, we owe a debt of gratitude to both those who take an oath to safeguard us and our way of life as well as to their families, and we salute them for their immeasurable sacrifices….

Happy Thanksgiving, Laura (Kiedove/Guest author)

    Just another method of pushing you back on the pile of claims and avoiding doing anything for another 1 to 2 years… hoping you drop dead while waiting! I sit and wonder how veterans except waiting for 5 to 7 years for a conclusion to their disability claims? This is criminal and should not be tolerated!!! And then we are asked to have a good attitude… like my claim, im working on that…

    To John G–below

    Incompetence at every level! My husband had a C & P exam at the local clinic. The doctor just asked him the DBQ questions from aon online screen. I was able to see the answers online at his account on myhealthyvet. When you go for a second C & P, ask examiner if they have reviewed your C-file. Ask lots of questions.
    I don’t see why the vets can’t access all the material sent in by C & P providers online these days.
    As far as a new Secretary, don’t know if that would help. Better to push Congress.
