Orlando Veterans Advocate Applauds Congresswoman’s Push for Timely Benefits During the Holidays


Veterans Advocate Frank Torres supports Rep. Kosmas's call to Defense Secretary to address delay in Stop Loss Pay, calls on other members of Congress to do the same.

Orlando, FL, December 24, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Central Florida Veterans Advocate Frank Torres is supporting a push for Veterans benefits by Rep. Suzanne Kosmas (D-Florida), during a holiday season when many Vets are struggling to make ends meet.

The retroactive stop loss pay program was announced earlier this year, to compensate soldiers that had exceeded their service commitments. The program, which pays each Vet $500 for every month past their time of separation; has been plagued with software problems since it began and has resulted in long delays of payment.

Rep. Kosmas sent a letter to Defense Secretary Gates calling on the secretary to address delays in processing payments. Kosmas wrote "Congress and the nation recognize the sacrifices made by our brave troops and their families and this pay was intended to ease their burdens when they could not return home as originally planned."

“This is the kind of initiative Veterans need from our elected officials” Torres stated “I will be contacting members of Congress from our neighboring districts urging a bi-partisan effort, to take similar action. It’s not about Republicans and Democrats this time; it’s about Americans working together to take care of service members and their families.”
