New Kid on the Block!

We would like to introduce you to a new organization, the Blue Water Sailors of the Vietnam War, or BWSVW.  Headed up by Bill Miltenberger, the group is just setting up shop now.  At the same time, the membership of VASVW has transferred over to BWSVW as VASVW is going away. 

We urge you to join Bill and the over 400 shipmates in getting BWSVW up and running in time to go to work on the new session of Congress.  Yes, our fight fell short again but again, we got closer than we ever got before.  This next session of Congress surely holds the promise of success for the restoration of presumptive exposure to Agent Orange among the Blue Water Sailors of the Vietnam War.

”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
