The "Bonus Expeditionary Forces,” arriving in the capital in April 2006 this time for the promise.


Thus, when a band of jobless veterans, led by a former cannery worker named Walter W. Walters,

began arriving in the capital in May, tensions were high. Calling themselves the "Bonus Expeditionary Forces". They demanded early payment of a bonus Congress had promised them for their service in World War I.


Now in 2006 “Operation Firing for Effect and The Veterans March” is returning to Washington for the promise. “Fulfill America's promise to care for those who have borne the battle”

Abraham Lincoln’s statement is not well served by the annual Federal appropriations process. The current direction of this process is headed in for 2006, does not reflect the sacrifice of those who have or are currently serving..

Below is a list of concerns that will drive our march on April 25 & 26, 2006.

• Full Mandatory Funding not Discretionary Funding.

• Cease and desist all VA Healthcare medical center, do not close campus’, but use them to improve the needs of our veterans

• Legal assistance and representation of need.

• Declassify all RECORDS of Veterans not serving.

• Long term care and assistance for needy Veterans

• Special disability programs.

• Agent Orange and PTSD.

• Biological and chemical exposure while serving in the Military.

• Cease and desist mandatory Lab experiment on military personnel.

• Claim reviews to be processed in a shorter length of time. (120 day max)

• Concurrent receipt for all Military retiree's.

• Fares Doctrine/Available Federal grounds to be used for recreation and therapy for Veterans.

• Enforce the current law to protect Veterans Disability benefit from the court system as an award to a third party. (US Code Title 38, Section 5301)

• Enact legislation to repeal the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act (USFSPA), 10 U.S.C. sect 1408, et seq.

• Put all Veterans on a system by where each is issued a card and he or she can go to any Doctor or any Hospital and receive medical care based on their service-connected disability.

• Compensation for all those that have demonstrated service connected disabilities because of any and all injuries/exposures to biological and chemical to include Agent Orange as well as PTSD because of those exposures.

RSVP Gene D. Simes by no later than March 31, 2006. 315-986-7322 585 329-4711

I will need a full count of those who are committing to this cause please

as an Option:
