VA Assists Financially Burdened Veterans
Week of January 19th 2009
For veterans struggling financially due to a job loss or decreased income, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is offering an assortment of programs. Veterans whose previous income was ruled too high for VA health care may be able to enter the VA system based upon a hardship if their current year's income is projected to fall below federal income thresholds. Qualifying veterans may be eligible for enrollment and receive health care at no cost. Veterans who recently returned from a combat zone are also eligible for no-cost VA care. For more information, contact the enrollment coordinator at any VA medical center, VA's Health Benefits Service Center at 1-877-222 VETS (8387) or visit the Military.com Finance Center.

Stand Up Proud

S.C.JONES

Hear me brethren, listen loud and clear.
Hear me from high rooftop and believe.
Open with your heart, body and soul.
Hear me, for you are about to recieve,

With revelation from us, a gift of love.
We were young, ready and proud.
We fought gallant in a distant far land,
Fought for freedom on soil and lofty cloud.

We were the men of Vietnam. REMEMBER US.
We rose silent from rural farm, town, and city.
Remember us not for ideals, but brother'n kinship.
We ask not your reverent sorrow, not your pity.

We ask only that you come to understand.
Understand our compassion, understand our care,
For these things in us had no greater value.
Should it be a thousand years hence do compare,

That we men of 'Nam stood tall. HONOR US.
We stood together. We sought to freely give.
Honor us not for valor and comely deed,
But rather with liberty, that all men should live.

Let know that we brave men of 'NAM did present,
What you, yourselves, deem honorable and right.
Stand now. Stand up proud. Stand with us.
Never let die freedom once begun. Never lose sight.

Take care least you forget-COMFORT US.
We who fought bravely, we are here.
Comfort us not with words, but with love.
Be proud of us. Give your heart sincere.

Study our faces. Understand the reason.
Feel it-feel it and then you will know,
The bonds of brotherhood, strong and true,
For it's in this Kinship, we solders do bestow.

We were the Vet's of Nam. STAND WITH US.
Come join us. Join the red, white, and the blue.
Stand with us not for Our glory, but Yours,
For We decree-Thank you boys-Thank You.

Our day has gone, but grief in passing.
We played our part. Let All men be endowed.
If no other tribute than this my friend,
Let it be known that we stood, Stood Proud.
