Letter: As a society, we cant do enough to thank our military veterans
Placeholder Image

The following is submitted for everyone’s approval. I hope at least the medical services and benefits can be given to all our vets. They saved our lives!

The America Flag flying in front of every store and business.

All veterans will have medical care and medicine for free, funded by a weekly amount from the megabucks or powerball games in the amount of $1 million or more every week.

All medical claims by Georgia doctors or hospitals on behalf of veterans will be sent to the Veterans Administration for processing and with the assistance of the governor. Legislation asking each state to do likewise for their veterans will be submitted.

Each grocery store’s manager will have food stamps in their store for those having financial trouble. The manager will approve anyone in need of food for their family to receive a once a month food stamps coupon book for a period of six months or less time if they have employment.

Each restaurant will provide a dollar menu, or price reduction, for all vets.

Homestead exemptions have been in effect for a long time, but additional help with down payments and financing would help vets tremendously with the lease security and first month’s rent money paid for all vets. This could also be funded by the public powerball and megabuck games, by using at least a percentage of the money to be given each month to the Veterans Administration.

Legislature giving assistance with family moving expenses for all vets.

Veterans will be extended additional credit for buying a car with only a small down payment and free service for all car repairs for that car.

All service personnel will be given free medical at any facility anywhere in the USA and on bases abroad, along with their family members.

When men and women sign up for the military they will be given a class A medical pass for themselves and their families. This will allow the invoice for medical care to be sent to the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force or Coast Guard, depending on the service they have joined.

All life insurance is provided by the Veterans Administration for $50,000. Any additional amounts of increase of coverage, up to $100,000, would be paid by the vet.
