Background: THE SENATE MUST PASS BLUE WATER NAVY LEGISLATION NOW!
The U.S. House of Representatives has unanimously passed H.R. 299, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019, which would finally restore benefits to some 90,000 veterans exposed to Agent Orange. Veterans who served in the offshore waters of Vietnam during the Vietnam War continue to be arbitrarily and unjustly denied benefits for illnesses associated with Agent Orange exposure.
This important bill now awaits consideration by the Senate, which failed to pass it last Congress.
Do not stand by as veterans suffer. Contact your Senators to demand they pass H.R. 299, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019. The Senate must not delay while Blue Water Navy veterans sicken and die from diseases related to Agent Orange exposure.
