Takes Nine Months to Locate Data on Disability Claims by Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars
Indicates that 1 in 4 Veterans of the Global War on Terrorism Claim Disabilities

Washington DC, October 10, 2006 - One in four veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars are filing disability claims,
according to records released by the U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA) under the Freedom of Information Act after
nine months of denying their existence and posted today on the National Security Archive Web site.
responded to the Archive's original January 2006 FOIA request for documents about the number of disability benefits claims
filed by veterans from the current war in Iraq by claiming that no documents existed, apparently because the reports concern
the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) rather than being limited to the Iraq War. Notably, one of the reports indicates that GWOT
is the "military name for the current wars in and around Afghanistan and Iraq." A similar report was released in December
2005 detailing Gulf War veterans' benefit activity. An updated copy of this report was released in March 2006.
the Archive administratively appealed the VA's "no documents" claims and advised the VA that it was prepared to file a lawsuit
did the agency manage to locate the records. One is a January 30, 2006, document: "Compensation and Pension Benefit Activity
Among 464,144 Veterans Deployed to the Global War on Terror." It reports that more than 150,000 deployed Operation Enduring
Freedom (Afghanistan) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (Iraq) veterans, out of more than 560,000 veterans of the Global War on
Terrorism (GWOT), filed disability compensation and pension benefits claims with the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA).
The other is a July 20, 2006, document: "Compensation and Pension Benefit Activity Among Veterans of the Global War on Terrorism."
groups have criticized the VA for using emergency appropriations to fund veterans' benefits rather than realistically planning
and budgeting for the veterans' needs. According to Veterans for America, the newly released data suggests official estimates
dramatically understate the future cost of the current Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. If the current trend continues, then VA
could receive as many as 400,000 disability claims from the 1.6 million deployed active duty and reserve service members in
the Global War on Terrorism. Jonathan Powers, Associate Director of Veterans for America and an Iraq War veteran, warned,
"VA already has a backlog, and the claims process is only going to get worse unless VA takes action now. VA has no plan or
funding to process and pay existing and future claims to ensure our veterans promptly receive the disability benefits and
healthcare care they earned."
most recent FOIA Annual Report, the VA purported to process 1.9 million FOIA requests during FY 2005, with a median processing
time of 11 days. Meredith Fuchs, the Archive's General Counsel, expressed dismay at how the FOIA request was handled: "For
the agency to take nine months to 'find' information that is of clear current public interest in the context of the ongoing
Global War on Terrorism is astounding. It is one thing for VA to be reluctant to deliver bad news, but another thing entirely
to deny the existence of the information."

A number of political and state official heads will roll.
When my New Jersey State
corruption complaints get investigated a number of political and state official heads will roll, including some in New Jersey's
Supreme Court. I have been writing them for three years, supplying evidence that Attorney Ethics Vice-Chairman Robert
Correale and his friends throughout their Office of Attorney Ethics are performing a Cover-Up to protect him and his
law firm, Maynard & Truland.
New Jersey federal Senator
Robert Menendez insists that I deal only with the New Jersey Office of Attorney Ethics. Yet one of his offices'
chief of staff admitted to me that the Office of Attorney Ethics accepted in official Supreme Court Certifications clear
perjury from Vice-Chairman Robert Correale and his fellow attorneys of Maynard & Truland.
Now, even Senator Robert Menendez is part of the cover-up.
And he's running for election this Election Day, calling himself a New Jersey State Corruption Fighter. Senator
Menendez is part of the corruption, just like the man who appointed him to the US Senate, NJ Gov. Jon Corzine.
Governor Corzine has already lost another one of his appointees, his Attorney General to ethics violations.
Corzine is worse than
Gov. Jim McGreevey. And we all know about McGreevey's corruption.
This is ISSUE 3 (Jon Corzine--Where Does He Stand)
and an addition to ISSUE 2. These people in New Jersey and Corzine will soon get the idea that perhaps they had better
take a closer look at exactly where they do stand and how they are treating you.
Thank you very much!
Hopefully, it will move the governor to do the right thing. My evidence stands for
itself. Jon Corzine also calls himself a corruption fighter, yet Jon has not returned any of my certified letters
and emails. You are right, Corzine doesn't want a scandal for his state.
Okay, Jack, here is Issue 2 of Perspective
and if focuses on YOU and the corrupt law enforcement and political system in New Jersey. This is the BEGINNING!
This story begins
with a Marine Uniform! He was born in 1950 and grew up watching many patriotic movie films of World War II Marines on
television. His brother-in-law, who he was very close to, was an honorable Korean War Marine. He proudly served
in the 1st Marine Division during some of the roughest times of that forgotten war.
At a young age,
he dreamed of the day that he would someday get to wear that proud and honorable Marine uniform. It was interesting,
especially since his older brother served in the U.S. Army and his other brother served in the Navy. (The harmless teasing
and comparisons were fun.) His father, being a proud retired New York City policeman, stayed out of the rivalries of
his three sons.
After his return
from Vietnam, he got to wear his Marine uniform with all the ribbons he earned serving in a peasant-farming village on the
countryside of Vietnam under the Marine Corps' Combined Action Program (CAP).

This is the first
part of my life, because I would like for you to know something about me before I get my book published. First of all,
my name is John A. Evans and I will be writing this story in small words. No big words because I would like for little
kids and everybody to be able to understand what they are reading. And I hope that they will be able to share this with
their kids, because it could happen to them in their future.
He was born in
a small town called Marion, Alabama. There were six of them in the family. His mother had to take care of them
by herself and she did the best that she could. He went to a small school called Marion Public School. From the
first grade to the sixth, they had hand-me-down books from white kids. And from the seventh grade to the twelfth grade,
he went to Lincoln High School. They were not able to go to school with the white kids. If they went to a restaurant
to get something to eat, they would have to go to the back door to be served. If a water fountain was for white people
only, they were not allowed to drink from it.

people, human beings, of different backgrounds, from different parts of this land, with one thing in common: they both
served with honor in the military and honored their country and upheld that for which they believed. But their country
did not honor them and instead, has thrown them to the wolves. They are but two of the MANY who have been deceived by
the country which they grew up in and a country they trusted and believed would stand with and behind them when the going
got rough. They both have been betrayed by the very country for which they served to protect and honor. America
owes both of these individuals big time, yet refuses to pay the debt.
is the first individual named above and he has been backed into a corner and is fighting for his very life, because a corrupt
political and legal system in New Jersey does not have the guts to stand up and do what is right. They hide the issues
in closets, they lose papers, they protect each other in their dirty little chambers and they are taking great steps to ensure
that the people buy their little pack of lies so that they will not lose their stature and their jobs.
John Evans is
the second individual named above and he has been backed into the same kind of corner Jack Cunningham has been backed into,
fighting for his very life, also. The corrupt political and legal system and machinery are grinding every ounce of life
out of this individual so that people in high places can continue to drive their Mercedes and live in their mansions.
These type of people have small minds, little, if any integrity, and no morals whatsoever, when it comes to doing what is
The biggest threat
to America is not coming from the terrorists and from any enemy in Iraq, in Vietnam, in Korea, in wherever! Our biggest
threat is coming from within and deep within a legal and political system which is so rotten and corrupt they have no conception
that they are on the wrong track. Crime is on the rise and has been because law enforcement does not know the difference
between right and wrong. Politicians are so corrupt that they cannot begin to know what it right for America.
They only know what is right for their pocketbook, their own existence and their own little world where they play their games.
and John Evans and countless other Americans served with honor to uphold and protect that which they believe. They put
their lives on the line and they sacrificed above and beyond to help YOU AND ME. They paid a huge price because the
nation they served to honor and protect has turned its back on them and thrown them to the wolves. They are out their,
on the Internet, on the streets, and anywhere they have to be to try to tell you the TRUTH and to have someone LISTEN and
do something about the corruption, the deceit, the lies, the falsehoods, and the treachery going on in the courts, the legal
system, Washington, and in America. But no one is listening or wants to listen. They turn their backs on the TRUTH
and they hide because they cannot stand to hear the truth and it seems, they do not care!
had better take note of this and stand up and be counted. You may not think this involves you but believe me, it does
involve you and it will come back to haunt you. God does not play favorites and one day when an accounting is held,
we will all pay the price for our neglect and apathy of other people.
is being denied his rights on every front in the State of New Jersey and the law enforcement, from the Governor on down, is
sitting back with smiles on their faces, playing with his life. They are afraid to face the truth and they are afraid
the truth will set Jack Cunningham free and set the record straight, which would mean some heads would roll and some people
could lose their jobs. So they continue their acts of treachery and toy with the life of Jack Cunningham. After
all, someone in Capital City does not want the people of New Jersey to really find out what actually happened to some of the
papers and take a peek in the DIRT closet where most of the TRUTH is hidden. But one day the people of New Jersey and
the people of America will find out just how corrupt the officials in New Jersey really are. You all can start searching
on the Internet and check out who is voting for what in the State of New Jersey and it will not take a genius to figure out
what the future will bring. The course law enforcement and the political system is on in New Jersey reminds me of the
voyage of the Titanic. YOU put two and two together and then you tell me what kind of chance Jack Cunningham has in
monitors law enforcement in New Jersey and if there is corruption deceit, treachery, etc., and they want to reform it, how
can it happen when the same corrupt system in office is in charge of the reform?
I challenge the
State of New Jersey to do the right thing, the honorable thing, to bring about justice and fair play. You have denied
due process to Jack Cunningham and you continue to deny him the right to live a decent life. He served to protect citizens
in New Jersey and America and he did that.
I want the people
of New Jersey to remember all of the above when the next election rolls around and when you mark those little blocks and pull
the levers, think of Jack Cunningham and what he has had to endure. He served with honor, he paid a huge price and now
he is being made to live like an animal, fighting for survival, at the hands of people with little minds who think they have
all of you in their back pocket. And the next time one of those political "ANGELS" comes to your door or calls your
home to solicit your vote.....and tell you they represent the people, ask them why Jack Cunningham is not considered to be
God Bless America,
Jack Cunningham, John Evans and all those out there who are serving for us right now in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
God Bless anyone in America who is helping or trying to help people like Jack Cunningham and John Evans. For the others,
I will pray that the light of understanding will cross your path so that you can learn to comprehend what kind of danger is
presented to us by corrupt law enforcement and political people who could care less for you and me.
YOUR ASS, MARINE! ~
