Veterans Supporting Veterans in NYC with a message for America

Marine Officer Thomas Alva Pridell and wife Debbie Pridell with Marine Officer Gene Simes

Veterans Supporting Veterans were in NYC protesting Iranian deal which was architected by President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Marine Officer Gene Simes, Operations Firing for Effects, and Marine Officer Thomas Alva Pridell, VSV NYS Chairman, and his wife Debbie stood outside of Fox Studios in New York City protesting to kill the Iranian Deal and return the $150 billion in assets given to Iran. The assets has placed US military and troops around the world directly in the crosshairs of Iran's enterprise placing a target on the back of US troops. They also showed support for Donald Trump and advises America to Listen and vote.

Marine Officer Gene Simes is President/Founder of Operation Firing For Effect (OFFE) which is the only organization actively and aggressively devoted to protecting veteran's disability benefits under all circumstances.

"When a combat disabled veteran falls on hard times, loses their job, their house, facing bankruptcy, experiencing failing health, emotionally unstable and going through a divorce, the feelings of hopelessness and helplessness can be overwhelming. When facing such hardships in life the one thing a combat disabled veteran should be able to count on are their military benefits – which in many cases they earned on the battlefield with their blood, sweat, and tears. It is at these low points in life when these disability benefits are needed the most, and when they can help the greatest. To allow anyone the ability to arbitrarily or ambiguously take these benefits from them is cruel and unjust. I honestly believe Congress wrote the 5301 law with all of this in mind". -- Gene D. Simes
