Our Veterans Deserve Better!

WASHINGTON - Dozens of veterans from southcentral Pennsylvania donned their caps and headed to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to lobby their congressmen for more ample health care and retirement benefits.

Rep. Todd Platts, R-York County, was one of the four representatives and two senators who met with the supportive crowd to discuss the Veterans of Foreign Wars defense and legislative goals for 2006.

Frampton, 69, wants to end federal deductions of veterans' retirement benefits to pay for VA medical treatment.
