Operation Truth: exposing the lies of veterans' benefits

Operation Truth, a non-profit veterans' organization founded in 2004 after Paul Rieckhoff returned from his year-long tour in Iraq, is running a new ad campaign. Here's what they say:
This week, the President and Congress are faced with a choice to stand either with or against our Veterans. The Bush Administration recently admitted that they miscalculated the health care costs for Veterans of the War on Terror by at least $1 billion this year and $3 billion next year. That means four-out-of-five returning Veterans could be turned away from care at the V.A.

A lot of folks talk about supporting our troops, but with policies like these on the horizon, we need to help. Click here to donate to Operation Truth's campaign to raise funds for this full page ad.
