Letter to the Editor: Brown bag congress

By RON SHAW

Editor:

This letter is for those who retired from the United States military and do not have access, or know how to use a computer. A National Class Action Group has implemented a "brown bag program" to draw Congressional attention towards the restoration of medical benefits we were promised if we served 20 or more dedicated years of service to our country. We were promised full medical care for us and our legal dependents and full dental for us retired GIs.

The brown bag program simply entails sending a torn off piece of a brown shopping bag with a short comment requesting their Congressional support. It can either be put in an envelope or mailed as a card to your senators and representatives. We feel this is a program that will grab their attention as well as hopefully draw media attention.
