Do your part to get these bills passed!

Our good friends at the Fleet Reserve Association have an action page [capwiz], that has a pre-written letter that you can add to, and send to your Representative and both Senators.  It is very simple.  Here is the link to their main page, click on http://action.fra.org/action-center/ and on the list choose:

Support Agent Orange/Blue Water Navy Legislation (H.R. 969/S. 681)

Once you get to the page you'll see two boxes, one with the Senate Letter and one for your Representative.  They are essentially the same.  Fill in your personal information, and when you are done, you will have an opportunity to contact up to six friends, to do the same thing.  Please spread the word by using that opportunity.

We have also placed a link at the top of the right hand column to take you to the FRA's Action page.

”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 Obama 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

"It follows then as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious."--President George Washington
