VETERAN'S GROUP GIVES 10,000 DISTURBING DVDs TO VETS ON REQUEST



VERSAILLE, Mo. -- The American Gulf War veterans Association, in conjunction with The Power Hour Productions, is giving away 10,000 DVDs of the video documentary "Beyond Treason" to veterans who simply ask for them.

Winner of the Grand Festival Award at the 2005 Berkeley Film Festival, "Beyond Treason" documents over 50 years of neglect and abuse of veterans by the DOD, VA and government officials. Using Senate reports, Congressional transcripts, military records and veteran testimony, the documentary explores the history of chemical warfare, Agent Orange, secret experiments, Gulf War illness and depleted uranium exposure.

"We are making this effort to reach out to veterans and their families, because hundreds of thousands remain ill and untreated by the VA. They are being denied any explanation or causation. ‘Beyond Treason' provides answers to questions that government officials and the DoD don't want asked, said Joyce Riley, RN, BSN, narrator of the documentary.

"Beyond Treason" is sent at no charge to any veterans who request it. Details of the offer can be found at the web site www.beyondtreason.com.

So.....what's so disturbing about this, other than the fact that the video is absolutely correct? Veterans aren't receiving the care they should be, and VA funding is repeatedly being cut, so that even less care is available.
