A new kind of civil rights movement

Letter from the community


To the Editor:

I am contacting to inform you of the Warfighter movement. This is a movement that I am proud to be a part of. We stand here today united to end Warfighter discrimination and stop PTSD phobia.

As you have seen, the issues with the Veterans Administration has been substandard for decades. However, this is not the only issue we as Warfighters are facing in America today. Routinely our Warfighter community is discriminated against in the areas of employment, housing, and whenever we stand before a judge. We will seek to take action in the courts through class action law suits and to propose legislation to end the discrimination of warfighters in America.

American Warfighters are comprised of 23 million veterans plus the additional numbers of those currently serving on active duty military and their families. In the 1960s Americans rallied to end discrimination with the Civil Rights movement. During that same time, the returning Warfighters were chastised and shamed by the very people they fought for. We continue to see this today as another generation returns from answering the call to arms of this nation.

The method of discrimination is different and in some ways more secretive and more underhanded. We will not allow this to continue to happen to the present day Warfighters. This is the era of the Warfighter Rights movement. Rather than complain with excessive rhetoric, we seek your assistance to support our effectiveness. We want all of our representatives at our backs.

We do not care about politics. Politicians who support us must agree to give no quarter to the corrupt. Expect to see us protest and rally in large numbers across the country.

If you have questions or want to be part of the movement, contact these email addresses:,, or
