Alert -- Action Required: Message from VVA


Message from John Rowan, VVA National President
On behalf of the Vietnam Veterans of America Board of Directors, I am requesting that on November 4, starting at 9:00 am, you call your members of Congress to seek their support for H.R. 1769 and S.901, the Toxic Exposure Research Act of 2015.
It is all about the one-minute phone call. Let your politicians know that you are watching and that you care.
The passage of the Toxic Exposure Research Act of 2015 is one of the most important efforts that we can do collectively to insure that future military service generations learn from our experience and that our offspring receive the respect and consideration for the sacrifices and pain that they endure from illnesses due to our service in Vietnam.
This is one of our last battles—Losing is not an option.

”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
