Veterans group gives Joe Wilson poor rating

Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America is a nonpartisan veterans organization whose primary goals include advocacy and support for veterans issues. In the past few years, it has emerged as one of the most respected and influential veterans groups in the nation. With more than 1 million men and women in uniform and hundreds of thousands of veterans, the need to ensure our veterans are taken care of has not been greater since the Vietnam War era. The group rates the performance of all senators and representatives with regard to veterans issues. Rep. Joe Wilson received a "D" rating. The ratings of all members of Congress can be found at www.iavaaction.org/ report-card. When casting your vote, please consider the importance of our young men and women in uniform and the sacrifices they make. Gordon Griffin Hilton Head Island
