Military Retiree Grass Roots Group

"They served their country for at least 20 years with the understanding that when they retired they and their dependents would receive full free health care for life..........

The promise of such health care was made in good faith and relied upon..........

Again, however, because no authority existed to make such promises in the first place, and because Congress has never ratified or acquiesced to this promise, we have no alternative but to uphold the judgment against the retirees' breach-of-contract claim."..........

United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, case number 99-1402, November 18, 2002..........

Of the thirteen Judges sitting en banc, nine found for the government and four found for the military retirees..........

This is part of a court's conclusion rendered in a lawsuit bought by military retirees against the government for breach of contract..........

However, it is also a good description of a swindle..........

The military hierarchy authorized the making of this medical care promise starting back in WWII, but according to this 2002 court decision they were not authorized to make the promise..........

So, all is forgotten,......... all is forgiven,......... we just write it off,......... and the military retirees that depended on that promise for medical care get swindled..........

What if you made payments on a house for 20 years under what you thought was a contract only to discover that the contract wasn't authorized and the house isn't yours?.........

Would you fight for what you think is yours,......... or would you just roll over and play dead?.........

Is there a set of rules in place today that protects the men and women that are fighting today’s wars from being swindled out of what they are being promised,......... just like the greatest generation of military retirees are being swindled?.........

In a few short years it will not matter because all of the military retirees that are affected by this swindle will be dead and the swindle story will die with them..........

Except for this website that keeps on living and telling our story!
