This will be the 6 trip to our nation’s capitol for some of the OFFE members. Operation Firing For Effect has established a positive reputation on the Hill and I am certain that this time will be no different, as many friends and supporters are attending the 4 day project.

If you are in the DC vicinity on the 4th, 5th,6th and 7th of April, we need your support desperately! The time to stand-up for the safeguard of our troop’s disability repayment is NOW!
The OFFE band will man room 2103 in the Rayburn Building on the 4th 5th and room 121 in the Cannon Household Building on the 6th and 7th. Appointments have been arranged with a number of ranking Congresspersons during the 4 day mission. OFFE volunteers will be incoming in DC from Iowa, Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Kansas, just to name a few states. The OFFE band will man the Congressional rooms from 10AM until 4PM on all 4 living.
The OFFE group is in the family way about 30+ volunteers to attend the OFFE consequence in DC. The OFFE band will be coming from all over the US, many of the group have been victimized by a divorce settlements – in which their veteran’s disability repayment were calculated into their divorce as ‘INCOME’ and divided with their ex-spouse in the form of support payments and officially authorized cost. OFFE has documented numerous hundred personal incidents where USC, Title 38, part 5301 has been violated,.
OFFE’s presentation includes a 10 small record of News synopsis from numerous TV stations across the country. The TV broadcasts highlight cases of 5301 abuse from numerous states across the country, including the Memorial Day tale of a wheelchair-leap veteran arrested and interned because he refused to give up his veteran’s repayment. To appointment, 10 members of OFFE have been arrested and interned for the very same mind.
The end consequence of the 5301 injustice is that combat disabled veterans who were injured on the battlefield can no longer come across the expense of to live, greatly less start a new family. In many cases the injured veteran gives up half or more of their veteran’s repayment. Many of our down-and-out veterans now are down-and-out because of a divorce settlement, while many others have select suicide over relinquishing their combat related repayment to their ex-spouse.
OFFE has received hundreds of complaints from in cooperation men and women US military veterans concerning the lack of Federal safeguard of their repayment from the control of State sponsored Family Courts. According to the wording in USC Title 38, 5301 veteran’s disability repayment are protected from use in ANY officially authorized process, and Civil Court is a ‘officially authorized process’. 5301 makes NO exceptions for the Federal safeguard of veteran’s repayment. Flush with a veteran has received their VA repayment, 5301 states that they are still ‘Federally Protected’. Unfortunately, attorneys have found traditions to circumvent the federal laws and strip combat disabled veterans of the repayment they were awarded and protected by the US government.
USC, Title 38, 5301 is just one of the issues the OFFE Band is plotting on addressing. Apparently many veterans who are facing a divorce upon their return to the US are loosing outcome custody cases because they have been deployed overseas for total periods of time. According to some divorce attorneys, since the veteran ‘volunteered’ to serve in the US military, the veteran ‘willingly abandoned’ their spouse and children, and consequently they should lose their outcome custody rights. In addendum, many divorce attorneys claim military veterans are capable of physical abuse of a spouse or outcome by goodness of their military schooling – which teaches them how to kill and ruin, or they have really experienced combat and/or suffer from PTSD. I in person heard this language used against Special Fleet, Green Beret, Ernie Pridemore during his divorce case in Key West, Florida late continue year.
According to OFFE Inhabitant Chairman, DNA Simes, combat disabled veterans are routinely stripped of their veteran’s disability repayment by civil divorce court mediate’s nationwide everyday of the year. The OFFE band has also learned State family courts in all-purpose have unquestionably no respect for the disabled US veteran, or their rights. Civil court judges do not admit the Federal laws which protect our disabled veterans and their repayment. This unjust practice by divorce court judges has resulted in disabled veterans apt down-and-out, and flush suicidal.
DNA Simes summarized the 5301 circumstances like this; “When a combat disabled veteran falls on tough times, loses their job, their household, facing bankruptcy, experiencing failing health, emotionally unstable and going through a divorce, the feelings of despair and exposure can be overwhelming. When facing such hardships in go the one thing a disabled veteran should be able to count on are their military repayment – which in many cases they earned on the battlefield with their blood, sweat, and tears. It is at these low points in go when these disability repayment are looked-for the most, and when they can help the greatest. To allocate anyone the ability to capriciously or arbitrarily take these repayment from them is cruel and unjust. I honestly believe the 20th Congress of the year all the way in trade in 1828 wrote this law with all of this in mind. And our research chains that argument,” Simes extra.
Continue year, OFFE submitted a formal written request to California Congressman Bob Filner for a public hearing previous to the Household Committee on Veterans Contact to present 12 personal testimonies from disabled veterans (in cooperation male and female) frankly affected by the 5301 issue. Filner by no means flush acknowledged receipt of OFFE’s letter. Congressman Jeff Miller has replaced Filner as Chairman of the Committee on Veteran’s Contact. Miller is a former supporter of the Florida Firebase Network and has been invited to attend OFFE’s presentation.
