Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America

Veterans Win One

August 2009



The Jewish War Veterans of the USA (JWV) commends the ruling by the Federal Appeals Court that recognizes veterans' entitlements as a property right, which is what the Congress, Administration, and all political leaders have promised from the beginning of our Nation to now without ever making their promises and words a reality.

The Federal Appeals Court held:

WE CONCLUDE THAT SUCH ENTITLEMENT TO BENEFITS IS A PROPERTY INTEREST PROTECTED BY THE DUE PROCESS CLAUSE OF THE FIFTH AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION.

Now is really the time for the veterans of this Nation to make demands upon our representatives to fulfill their promises and their obligations since they no longer have the opportunity to hide behind veteran entitlements.

We call upon all of our elected representatives to support and adopt mandatory funding of veterans' health benefits.

It is time for them to put up or shut up.
