A leader for the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs is afraid there won't be enough money to help returning veterans from the Middle East.

 

Tom Mann spoke to 100's of northwest Veterans at their annual picnic which was help near Corvallis on Saturday.


"we know as veterans the work just starts as the war ends- last year the federal v-a- had a million claims- a stunning amount of work! and then as they answered those 1 million claims - 1.2 million came in - can you imagine what's going to happen if a million troops come home? who is going to be there to help them?"
 
Mann is urging older veterans to reach out and help the younger veterans.  He asked all veterans to speak out more, get involved in the political process, to make sure that veterans programs get the funding needed.
