Cool VFW to Testify In Support of Blue Water Sailors

VFW to Testify In Support of Blue Water Sailors
Report VFW 3-31-17

VFW to Testify In Support of Blue Water Sailors:

On April 5, 2017, the VFW will testify in front of the House Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs. While the testimony will concern a total of six bills, this is the first testimony in the 115th Congress on H.R. 299, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2017. Those veterans who served in the U.S. Navy during the war in Vietnam are impacted by an arbitrary and capricious decision by VA to not be included under presumptive coverage unless they were operating on land or inland water ways. This decision prevents veterans who suffer from the same conditions as other Vietnam veterans from receiving care for these conditions and ending this exclusion is a major priority for the VFW. You can watch the testimony, which will start at 10:30 a.m. EDT, by clicking here.
