Respond to our poll on new look VNVets!!

First and foremost a huge THANK YOU to all of our loyal readers out there. We just celebrated our third anniversary of VNVets Blog on Saturday.

We hope you like the new look, and hope it is easier to navigate. We have added a poll, to help make things more interesting, and will try to update with new polls weekly, or bi-weekly. We must apologize, however, for instituting advertising on the blog. While waiting for a Haas turnaround, we need some help with the cost of gas. So, when and if the ads appear, please feel free to patronize them. Most of it should be relevant.

Keep checking in for more posts, and fresh news on the Blue Water Navy Vietnam issue. We are constantly researching the science behind the dioxin debacle, and ways to make our case. We are being heard. We are read by several VA Regional Offices, The VA headquarters, the Senate, the House, and the Federal Courts, along with some supposedly intimidating govenment agencies like Homeland Security, the IRS, and the Army's Cyber Command.

That makes us happy. It says that we are on the right track, and doing and saying the right things -- otherwise they would ignore us.

So keep up the great work all you tipsters, and be assured we are indeed getting close to making a contact in the national media who will publicize our plight.

About the poll: we threw you a bit of a curve ball by adding Bush's name. We sent our medals to Akaka, Filner, and to President Bush, along with personalized letters to each. The Envelopes were marked "Operation Medal Return". The original post,
"Time to Mail", did not include the whitehouse. If you have the medals, go ahead and send to President Bush.

Here is the address:
President George W. Bush
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Finally, we suggest to you that it is time to close ranks:
  • Get your buddies on board this fight, and your friends and relatives. Get as many as possible to join the BWNVVA.
  • Have your VNVet buddies join us in "Operation Medal Return". Non-Blue Water Sailors should feel free to support our efforts by reurning their medals as well.
  • Have your friends and family remain up to date by subscribing to VNVets Blog.
  • Keep pushing the Agent Orange Fair Compensation Act at your Senators and Representatives.
  • Finally, keep the faith! Justice will prevail.
Again, thank you all for your loyal readership, and thank you for all the tips, insights, and corrections. We have not always been right, but we have been quick to correct when we are wrong. We appreciate you keeping us on our toes.

In short, you've been great. Thank you, and keep up the great work we are about.

Now, let's see what government offices we can stir up in the next three years...


"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

”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

"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
