I call on Congress to fix this miscarriage of justice immediately,” Levine, the former mayor of San Rafael, said in a prepared statement. “Americans are appalled by this disrespectful demand on veterans who served our country during a time of great need. These veterans served their country with honor. We need Congress to provide services to our veterans now that they are home.”
