Attention Those who are attending Wednesday!

Just a note with recommendations that those Veterans who are planning to attend the Introduction of the Agent Orange Equity Act of 2008 on Wednesday: If you are a member of the Order of the Silver Rose, please wear your medal.

Regardless, wear your pins and miniatures, or if you still have them, wear your full size Medals! Ball caps are also advised.

Folks, I cannot tell you how excited I am for this event. This is the real deal! We intend to post a report sometime Wednesday late afternoon, more likely Wednesday evening, and provide at least some photos. We will post the text of the Bill, and as much detail of the event as we can garner.

To those of you who are coming, thank you!

To those of you who cannot come, you will be remembered by those of us there. I'll see to that.

”It is a stain on this nation's honor that the Department of Veterans Affairs has become a deadlier and more difficult adversary to the American veteran than any they have ever faced on a battlefield."-- VNVets

"The concept that Agent Orange, and its effects, stopped dead in its tracks at the shoreline is simply too illogical, and too ludicrous to accept. What does that say about the Bush Administration and his Department of Veterans Affairs?"--VNVets

"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
