Veterans Donate $13M of Class-Action Settlement to Charity

Kudos to this group of veterans who, according to the New York Daily News, are donating about $13 million of $20 million won in a class-action settlement from the Department of Veterans Affairs over a massive identity-theft suit to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and the Fisher House Foundation, two New York-based charities that help families of fallen and wounded troops.

Fisher House Foundation CEO Ken Fisher said, “When I first heard about it, it just really knocked me down. It’s indicative of the kind of men and women they are.” Plaintiff John Rowan, “a 64-year-old Air Force veteran from Middle Village, Queens,” said, “The veterans are very glad to have done this.” He added, “But the bottom line is, we had to make sure the VA doesn’t do this again.”
