Letter: Veterans could pay for border wall
I am looking at compensation for service-connected disabilities.
Various veterans are paid $3,700.92, $3,027.58, $2,469.12 and $617.73 per month. I personally receive $140.05 per month for a service-connected disability.
The amounts of $3,700, $3,027, $2,469, $617 and $140 have a positive effect on our standard of living, but the cents do not.
