NY Legion Expresses Outrage at Threat to Vets
While hailing efforts by some members of Congress to push legislation to protect national security as well as veterans benefits, he called the VA furloughs, along with "the posturing and arrogance in Washington," an "egregious affront to veterans and the American people."
Governor noted that while VA regional offices are closed, "our American Legion service officers there are still working, talking to veterans by phone even if the veterans are not allowed into the office areas to meet the service officers in person."
The American Legion is the largest, wartime veterans service organization in the county.
