From our friends at TREA [The Enlisted Association]:
GOOD NEWS FOR NAVY BLUE WATER VETERANS
The Solicitor General submitted a motion to SCOTUS to dismiss Gray v. Wilkie as a moot case, as DoJ has decided not to appeal the decision in Procopio.
This means Procopio is now law of the land: "The Solicitor General has decided not to file a petition for a writ of certiorari in Procopio, and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will follow Procopio's interpretation of the Act going forward."
TREA is continuing to push for passage of H.R. 299, which has already passed the House of Representatives and awaits action by the Senate.
TREA urges you to contact your Senators and ask them to support Navy Blue Water Veterans Act of 2019.
[Bye continuing to press Congress to pass the BWN Act TREA is pushing for two branches of Government to have the same set of rules, and more importantly to ensure that Congress will appropriate the funds necessary for ALL BWN Veterans who suffer from Agent Orange related diseases.]
”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
