Disabled Veterans Group Organizes Virtual March on Washington

One of the nation’s largest Veterans organizations is organizing a “virtual march on Washington” to protect Veteran’s benefits and compensation from being targeted for cuts in the ongoing debt crisis. The virtual march is being organized on Facebook and Twitter by the Disabled American Veterans to protest the impasse in Washington, D.C. over the debt crisis and President Obama’s recent remarks that if the nation defaults he will not be able to ensure that social security or Veteran’s benefits will be able to be paid.

Veterans, family members and supporters will be encouraged to record and post personal videos discussing their benefits, as well as be encouraged to contact their elected officials to resolve the situation. Many Veteran groups are concerned that if there is any decrease in disability compensation, thousands of Veterans will not be able to get by.
