Obama Cares about Veterans

Tuwang tuwa ah.. hehe joke!
The processing of claims for Filipino veterans are being fast tracked by the US government and are being given priority so things like benefits would be given what's due them. US Ambassador to the Philippines Kristie Kenney promised this after US President Barack Obama signed the awaited 'economic stimulus package' where the Veterans Equity Bill is also included. Kenney assured transparency in these claims so only legitimate Philippine veterans would only be given their compensation.

She was also saddened that there are a lot of World War II Veterans that already died and never got the opportunity to receive their benefits. She added that she knows how this feels for their loved ones because her father was also part of the army who passed away four years ago. A pretty heartfelt gesture for the US ambassador. I like her a lot.
