The Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans are still waiting for equity in Agent Orange relief assistance from the VA. In this episode an article from The Hill.com titled: Senators press VA on Agent Orange benefits submitted by Rebecca Kheel is featured. It reports on a Senate hearing designed to discover why the VA is not doing more to help the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans who are suffering from Agent Orange related illnesses.
There is pending legislation before both houses of Congress designed to provide the equity in Agent Orange relief services from the VA sought by that group of Vietnam Veterans. You are highly encouraged to contact your representatives in Congress and ask them to support the proposed legislation.
