Dear Mr. Simes,
I am writing this letter to emphasize my support for Operation Firing For Effects (OFFE’s) cause for Mandatory Funding for Veterans’ Healthcare Services. As a former professional football player for the Seattle Seahawks and a successful business owner, I wish to express my enthusiastic support for the OFFER cause to ensure healthcare obligations to our veterans.
We have a generation of young Americans that are putting themselves in harm’s way on behalf of this great nation. We benefit from the sacrifices of these brave men and women, and it is our duty as a nation, as a community, and as Americans, to be there for them during their time of need. Overlooked however are the many wounded that must return to VA centers for lifelong treatment. We also owe this group a debt of gratitude and our unending support.
As a former professional football player and Service Disabled Veteran business owner, I urge other veteran professional athletes and business owners to support the Mandatory Funding for Veterans Healthcare. In particular, I commend the OFFE mission and am of the opinion that the campaign 2008 in support of mandatory funding offers veterans hope that their healthcare services are protected. I am here to let you know that I stand for our troops and please let me know if I can be of further assistance as you move forward with the OFFER master plan.
