We the People of the United States of America recognize the service of our brave men and women who are currently serving and/or who have ever served in our military.
We feel that our veterans deserve the best health care available to include dental and vision for all veterans with a service-connected disability regardless or disability rating.
We understand that good vision care is a key quality of life issue. We also understand the importance of good dental health care. Bad teeth, bleeding gums and poor dental hygiene can end up causing heart disease. "Cardiovascular disease is currently the biggest killer in the western world. Oral bacteria such as Streptococcus gordonii and Streptococcus sanguinis are common infecting agents, and we now recognize that bacterial infections are an independent risk factor for heart diseases," (quoted from article in Science Daily: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/09/080910210523.htm)
Please treat our service-connected veterans accordingly and ensure that they have all of the preventative medical care that they need to remain as healthy as possible.
Our veterans served this country with honor so let's honor our veterans and thank them accordingly. Caring for them when they return home injured is the least that we can do.
