Please ask your Senator to support Tester Amendment 1972 to S.4049

Senator John Tester (D-MT), Ranking Minority Member, Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, has submitted Senate Amendment 1972 into the Senate version of the FY 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), S.4049. This amendment would add bladder cancer, hypothyroidism, and Parkinsonism as service-connected conditions.
Our Vietnam veterans are still suffering from the consequences of Agent Orange. Each of these diseases has met the scientific threshold of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, to be credibly linked to Agent Orange. What remains is the addition of these conditions to the list of Agent Orange-presumptive diseases.
Please use the prepared letter on the site and contact your senator NOW to request their support for the passage of Senate Amendment 1972 to end the wait for many of our nation’s Vietnam veterans, so they can receive their disability benefits for their service and sacrifice to our great nation.
