Letter: Cutting VA ribbon not nearly enough

I agree with Jim Graalum’s letter in The Forum (Aug. 6). If Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., is for the veterans who served so faithfully, why isn’t she on board and pushing passage of legislative bills S. 240 and S. 234? I have 40 percent disability from my more than 20 years of service in the U.S. Air Force, and I haven’t received any compensation for it yet. I’ve been waiting a long time for these bills to get passed.

Get on board, Sen. Heitkamp, if you really are in support of the servicemen and women. She was also at the ribbon- cutting of the new addition to the Fargo VA. Maybe this was just for a photo op and publicity.
