Conference Proceeding
The author focuses on an article by A. L. Punaro on the passivity of the U.S. Congress in acting to proposals made by various commissions to address critical issues related to war veterans and defense. He explains how the Commission of the National Guard and Reserve and Veterans Disability Benefits Commission were formed to study and recommend solutions to issues. However, the Congress has done very little to implement the recommendations despite the effort of the commissions.
