Despite the deceptive and exaggerated TV ads, we vote based on how politicians help people instead of for their political party.
Sen. Kay Hagan has been instrumental in helping secure veteran benefits for our two sons. She helped them when other politicians we called didn’t bother and kept on until the job was done.
Our Marine son returned from Iraq having to fight red tape to prove he needed several operations and therapy. Once someone gets in that computer the wrong way, it’s tough to prove the truth.
The Army son returned from Afghanistan with his own difficulties as a veteran, but once again Hagan sliced through that red tape.
We have heard from other families that she helped them too. One example is the way she battled for military families whose water was contaminated at Camp Lejeune.
We would like to thank her for being responsive to our family’s needs and to other North Carolina veterans and their families.
