House of Representatives to Move Forward on Constitutional Amendment

VCS: Urgent Action: House of Representatives to Move Forward on Constitutional Amendment

The United States is faced with a number of pressing concerns related to national security and the quality of life of veterans, including the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Out of the 360,000 discharged veterans from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, nearly one in four have already visited the Veterans Administration for physical injuries or mental health counseling. Our government has a duty and a responsibility to address both the traditional and non-traditional effects of war, including battlefield injuries, post-traumatic stress, and diseases resulting from vaccines and toxic exposures.

These concerns should be on the top of the congressional agenda this session. But instead of devoting its time and resources to resolving these urgent challenges, Congress apparently chooses to consider amending the Constitution to prohibit a form of nonviolent _expression. We are dismayed by this choice.

This week the House will go to markup a proposed Constitutional Amendment to prohibit "desecration" of the flag of the United States. While, as veterans, we are offended by the desecration of the U.S. flag, we are even more offended by Congress presuming to restrict the liberty of American citizens.

VCS will deliver a letter to Congress opposing this Constitutional Amendment. Please add your name to this letter -- we are seeking to get 1,000 signatures of veterans and supporters in the next 24 hours.


As always, thank you for your support of Veterans for Common Sense.

With warmest regards,

Charles Sheehan-Miles
Executive Director
