Once again having to fix something that never should have been broken:
"I'm pleased we've restored COLA cuts for the most severely wounded veterans, but we need to restore pension cuts for all of our military retirees," Hagan said. "We've made a commitment to these brave men and women, many of whom have deployed overseas for combat missions multiple times, and we must keep the promises we've made to them. I will continue working to ensure our veterans receive the benefits they have earned."
If you'll flip your channel over to News14 now, you'll see a recurring story about five hundred soldiers from the 18th Airborne Corps deploying to Afghanistan for a 12 month tour. Whenever you see something like this, pay particular attention to whether they have a military unit patch on their right arms. This denotes (at least one) previous deployment into a combat zone, and every single soldier I saw in this video had one, from various units. That's all I'm going to say about that.
