There is strong bi-partisan support for concurrent receipt. I urge you, as
Commander-in-Chief, to support those who are currently in harms way and
those who served in previous wars and support this provision to end
discrimination against retired veterans. Please fund, pass and sign
Concurrent Receipt legislation

Act Today: Use TROA's toll-free hot line to Capitol Hill
Just ask the Capitol operator to connect you to your CONGRESSMAN & call
again to your senators' offices;
then give the staffer your name and address along with the
following message:

Please fund & pass 100% Concurrent Receipt. It is unconscionable that
wounded and otherwise disabled veterans must forfeit their retired pay in
order to receive veteran's disability compensation. Retired pay is earned
by years of service and sacrifice. VA disability compensation is paid for
wounds or other disabling conditions incurred in service to our country.
The Senate and House proposals simply place retired veterans on the same
basis as retired Congressmen, Senators & other Federal Civilian employees
who receive VA compensation and their full-retired pay.
