RYAN HALLBERG: I was in Iraq in 2006 and got blown up. I applied for the traumatic injury benefit, and twice I was denied.
KLOBUCHAR: It was really outrageous. They said they had no proof of Ryan Hallberg’s disability.
HALLBERG: With the pain I was in, I literally gave up on it.
KLOBUCHAR: This soldier who lost a leg for this country. What more proof did they need?
HALLBERG: I made contact with Senator Klobuchar. Like a bulldog, she went to work. Because what Amy Klobuchar did, other soldiers are now going to get what is due to them.
KLOBUCHAR: I am Amy Klobuchar, and I approve this message.
