Give Vietnam Blue Water Navy Veterans their presumptive rights - Add Your Signature!

The Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Association just posted an update on the petition you signed, U.S. House of Representatives: Give the Vietnam Blue Water Navy Veterans their presumptive rights.

We're at 60,000 signatures and climbing!

The Health side is a problem. But where is the root cause of the problem? The very top echelon of the VA management supported by the Veterans Benefits Administration. When money gets tight the VBA goes into action. Deny all Blue Water Navy claims, call for an investigation (loosely called research) to see if the burn pits were really harmful to one's health, A delaying tactic. Don't bring up the 500,000 patients treated for COPD each year because of the chemicals used in everyday military life. Restrict the claims on LeJuene water benefits to a bare minimum. Ensure that required records needed to prove a claim are not available. They have had so many years of practice at it, they're experts. Although I am repeating hear say, but one top executive was purported to say, if you bring me one expert to testify in your favor, I'll get ten to testify against your claim. So it's all money, show me the money and anything is possible.

  1. Mar 31, 2016 — As of 6:00 am this morning we're approaching the 75,000 mark. It's easily within reach if you all pitch in and get one friend to sign up. Am I asking too much, one more family member or acquaintance? No. The leaders in Congress have been following this, and I get inquiries from the media all the time as to our progress. Let us not fail when victory is so close. Don't let our efforts today go in vain.

    If you are a member of the VFW, AARP, or other organization, write to them saying you, as a member, would like to see support for this petition and presented to its' membership for consideration.
