On a previous episode (#57) Blue Water Navy activist John Bury talked about his efforts to get a bill passed in the Congress to get help for all Vietnam Veterans excluded from coverage for illnesses caused by Agent Orange.

In this episode he tells about an important milestone reached in getting Representative Chris Gibson’s bill HR-543 passed into law. The magic number of 218 co-sponsors has been achieved and now the bill can be moved on to the House of Representatives for consideration. It is not a done deal yet but it is moving along to passage where it can provide help for the hundreds of thousands of Vietnam Veterans suffering from this dreaded condition.

You are encouraged to let your Representative know you are in favor of passage of this important piece of legislation.
