Legion Magazine publishes follow-up

As you know, last summer the American Legion Magazine published an article on Blue Water Navy's fight to get benefits restored [archived link]. It featured members of VASVW. Now, the author, Ken Olsen, has written a follow up titled "Still Adrift" [archived link], in the March, 2011 issue of the Legion Magazine.

Our thanks go out once again to the great folks at the American Legion, and their Magazine staff for the support they are giving us in keeping this issue out before the public.

We urge all to read the article.

Thanks again to a great reporter Ken Olsen, and the Editor of the American Legion Magazine, Jeff Stoffer, and his staff who put out a great product!

Bravo Zulu!


”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
