Pete Cataldo: Website Title: Wounded Warrior Project Places 1000th “Warrior to Work” Article Title: Wounded Warrior Project Places 1000th to Work Recovery: Business Wire “http://www.businesswire.com/” 09 OCT. 13 Date Accessed: August 02, 2015 (Josh) Pete Cataldo, a representative from WWP, was directly referenced through the creditability handed out from the nationwide known agency known as Business Wire, “The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors.”
The military’s deceptive authority on the treatment of wounded veterans carries little evidential weight. Therefore, the logo of the Wounded Warrior Project carries less credibility than originally presumed, and the effect of the image becomes less effective on each advertisement by the
Veteran Benefits The issue of veteran benefits in the United States is not taken as seriously as it should be in our country, even though it is a growing problem that needs to be addressed. The lack of available funding for veterans is especially obvious when compared to that available for lower income citizens, or even illegal immigrants. Also, what does exist appears to fall short in taking care of veteran’s needs. Considering that these veterans are people who have risked their lives fighting for this country, the fact that they are not receiving immediate benefits or even what they have earned is unfair.
Our Warriors Today there is an outrage in our Veteran community of how terrible the United States Department of Veterans Affairs and their lack of caring and funding for our heroes. In this paper I will give facts on how terrible this problem really is, whether it is our homeless Veterans, Veterans who die waiting for help from the VA because they cannot afford other healthcare, or the horrid waiting times in order to get any help.
That’s why it makes perfect sense to expand and reconstruct the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to undertake such a massive service. Veterans don’t deserve to be treated like this, the forgotten hero’s, now the homeless, and the starving.

The organization prides itself for working with and advocating for the rights and needs of disadvantaged people.

Veterans are some of the bravest men and women that you will ever know. They fought for our country in our most desperate hours and risked their lives so we could have the chance to live ours. It is such a shame that they are ignored and even homeless in today 's society. I had wondered how we could get veterans of the street and back into the job world. After research I found that there are programs and methods put in place specifically to help these struggling veterans.
A veteran is someone who has served a long time in the military, no matter what their age. Veterans are important to our freedom because while serving their time, you have to remember that they are fighting for your right to be free in the United States. Without them, there wouldn’t be any freedom in this world. They fight for what they believe in and what is right for the country. You have to remember, these war vets are putting their lives on the line for people they don’t even know. Having a good understanding of this will brighten your mind on how much they devote their lives to this. When anyone chooses to go into the military, they will spend many months away from their family and loved ones. These vets defend everyone no matter what race, gender, age, or religion and they show that by giving us back the freedom that they fought for. To
Gertrude Monyenna is a divorced mother of two teens who was shot and is disabled afterword in an interview she stated that after her TRC hearing she only receives “... small interim payments, (Doc10)” of about “....600 dollars, [monthly] (Doc10) ”. She feels that “The perpetrators got their lawyers, got everything. They’re not struggling like us” As evident from her story, the TRC does very little more for the victims than provide symbolic reparations. This does not help them with their daily lives, in which many of them need constant care from injuries. This is such common knowledge that it is even in their comics.
This shows war causes more than pointless death it also causes so many disabilities and emotional trauma. There is an estimated 313,890,422 veterans who know have some form of disability according to The United States Census Bureau. All of these Veterans has disabilities ranging from emotion to physical. The
VA Choice Act was a politically motivated Band-Aid on a placed over severed artery. Without a re-vamp of the entire US healthcare system, The Obligation of Honor to US military Veterans cannot be fulfilled due to an overburdened, underfunded VHA and the attempt of “privatization” of the excess Veteran demand to the private sector health care system has proven abysmal. The only hope to fulfill the Obligation of Honor is a restructuring of the entire US healthcare model incorporating Universal healthcare. Undersecretary for Health Dr. Randy Petzel retired on May 15, 2014 and VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned two weeks later on May 30, 2014. The U. S. President appointed the Honorable Robert “Bob” McDonald as the new VA Secretary charged with making changes to the VA System.
Soldiers train rigorously, preparing for the departure of war. They sacrifice all that they have to fight for their country. As they return after the war, they are left with painful experiences and traumatizing memories, suffering from their inevitable conditions. However, the spouse, families and children back at home are suffering even more than soldiers.
