The Department of Veterans Affairs has stopped issuing Irene Miller her pension checks because they say they overpaid her for years. Now she needs to pay them back. And in the mean time until it is paid back they stopped all her checks, leaving her no income to pay her monthly bills.
This is absurd! They claim she owes $26,000.00 - how do they expect her to pay anything back if her only income source has been stopped? Miller lives alone with her dog Penny and is confined to a wheel chair. She relies on the VA checks she gets monthly to pay the rent.
Ms. Miller spent her time in the service as a Navy storekeeper third class. She served at a time when women were not drafted so she willing sacrificed and gave so much for our country, we hope that in her time of need you can help us please raise enough funds to keep a roof over her head and food in her and her dogs belly while we help her get things straightened out with the VA. Unfortunately, she doesn't have anyone helping her with the paperwork and doesn't have access to a fax or even know how to use one to respond to the VA.
