Action Alert:

Dave Worthen Webmaster - 11/18/2020

Background: 
Right now, congressional conference committee members are deciding on which provisions will remain in the final version of S. 4049, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (NDAA.) Senate Amendment 1972 to this bill would provide the life-saving care and benefits needed for Vietnam veterans suffering from bladder cancer, hypothyroidism, and parkinsonism.

For decades, Vietnam veterans have endured the ill health effects of Agent Orange exposure. Currently, VA recognizes 14 presumptive conditions linked to Agent Orange exposure. Scientific studies have also determined the same link to bladder cancer, hypothyroidism, and parkinsonism. However, VA has refused to add these diseases to the list of presumptive conditions, making it nearly impossible for these veterans to receive the desperately needed care and benefits they have earned.  

 

Take Action:
Contact your senators and representative today and tell them to ensure Senate Amendment 1972 remains in the final version of the NDAA. Hold Congress accountable to do the right thing for our Vietnam veterans!
