Support Native American Veterans

From Native American Times. Due to an "accounting error" by the Defense Department, Native Americans whose residence was in Indian Country had state taxes wrongfully withheld from their salaries. Though the practice was finally stopped in 2001, a bill to reimburse these honored veterans has been languishing in Congress since October 7, 2004.
