Promised Money Shows Up Late

March 12, 2007

This comes on the heels of recent reports that conditions of Walter Reed Army Medical Center are unacceptable.

Monday afternoon, Junior Vice Commander-in-Chief, Glen Gardner made a stop at a local post. He said the government needs to step up and pay up.

“We have a lot of young men and women that are going six months to a year before they get a compensation check. A lot of them don't have a way to pay their bills, they're out of the service, they can't go back to work, they've lost legs, they've lost arms and it's just a system that needs to be worked on,” said Gardner.

Gardner spent the weekend traveling to posts all over Virginia spreading the word on the issues facing veterans.
