The United States Government reports that there are nearly 4 million veterans in our country who have either partial or total disabilities that are related to their time serving in the armed forces. We need to protect these veterans. Under the law, qualified disabled veterans are entitled to compensation, both in the form of medical benefits and income benefits.
