The Agent Orange Fair Compensation Act
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE; REFERENCES TO TITLE 38, UNITED STATES CODE.
SEC. 2. CLARIFICATION OF AUTHORITY TO ESTABLISH PRESUMPTIONS BASED ON HERBICIDE EXPOSURE; CONFIRMATION OF RETROACTIVE PAYMENT.
SEC. 3. CLARIFICATION OF DEFINITION OF SERVICE IN THE REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM.
We think enough of this proposed bill to send it by FAX -- again -- to Senators Akaka and Burr with a request that they jointly introduce the bill with favorable comments, as a COURTESY to the Blue Water Navy Veterans of the Vietnam War.
We are also sending it to Representative Filner -- again.
We urge you to print copies and go face to face with your Senators and Representatives, hand it to them, and ask them to get Filner, or Akaka and Burr to sponsor it and preesent it out of committee so it can be passed before the conventions.
"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan--to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." -- President Abraham Lincoln
"Without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious." --President George Washington
