URGENT! Support Senate Floor Amendments for NDAA 
Full Senate consideration of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA-S.2987) is expected to begin next week. This will include a vote on a Senator Dean Heller’s (NV) FRA-supported amendment that would expand concurrent receipt payments for many disabled retirees.

In addition, Senator Bill Nelson will introduce an FRA-supported floor amendment to the Senate NDAA that will repeal the SBP/DIC offset for survivors, sometimes referred to as the “Military Widows Tax.” Members are strongly urged to use the FRA Action Center on the website ( to contact their Senators to urge them to support the Heller concurrent receipt amendment and the Nelson SBP/DIC offset repeal amendment.

”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
