NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
We need to take action to support those Vietnam veterans who had benefits and then had them taken away. VA treats Vietnam veterans in two classes with one getting benefits for exposure to Agent Orange and others getting nothing but denials. Please take action as mentioned below. It is easy and you only have to fill in your contact information. Thanks!
Assistant State Service Officer
Subject: Take Action: Blue Water Navy Bill Must Pass Before End of Year
Background: In July, the House of Representatives unanimously passed H.R. 299, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2018, to end the injustice of denying Vietnam, Korean DMZ, and Thailand veterans who suffer from life-threatening health conditions the care and benefits they deserve.
This important bill continues to be stalled in the Senate. The VFW needs your help to make sure this bill is passed before the end of the year. If the Senate fails to do so, the bill will die and may never be considered again.
Take Action: Contact your Senators to demand that the Senate passes H.R. 299. The Senate must not delay passage of this important bill while Blue Water Navy veterans sicken and die from diseases related to exposure to Agent Orange.

I stand with the Veterans of Foreign Wars and call on @vachair and the full Senate to pass H.R. 299! Rather than continue studying the health of Blue Water Navy veterans for yet another decade while those veterans sicken and die from diseases related to exposure to herbicides, the Senate must grant long-overdue benefits to the thousands of veterans who served their country off the shores of Vietnam.
Or Call (202) 224-3121 and ask to be transferred to your Senators.
