An Uninsured Veteran

Besides opposing the war in Iraq, Iraq Veterans Against the War support full healthcare benefits (including mental health benefits) for veterans regardless of discharge status.

The following video is an interview with Iraq veteran Nick Morgan who was trampled by police at a demonstration against the war at Hofstra University, in Hempstead, NY. Nick discusses his injuries, and his $5,000 medical bill not covered by his VA insurance despite coming home from the war less than five years ago.

A national, single-payer healthcare system would guarantee health coverage to all veterans, and American residents, for life.

All donations made to Healthcare-NOW! in honor of Nick Morgan and IVAW will help pay for his medical bills and build the movement for single-payer national healthcare.
