Congress is very close to finally passing Blue Water Navy legislation, but unless the Senate acts in the next two weeks, that effort will fail.
Earlier this year, the House of Representatives passed legislation to finally provide full benefits to Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans by a unanimous, bipartisan vote of 382 to 0; however, the bill has been stalled in the Senate since June. With just days remaining in the 115th Congress, we need to get the support of all Senators in order to pass this legislation now.
The best way to send this message is by making a quick phone call to your Senators offices and letting them know that you want the Senate to pass Blue Water Navy Veterans legislation this year. Be sure to give them your name and address and ask that the Senator report back to you what actions they take. If you don’t know who your Senators are, you can find a list of them here: www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm or you can call the Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and asking to be connected to your Senator.
In addition, please take a minute to click the “Take Action” link below to send the prepared electronic letter to your Senators urging them to pass Blue Water Navy legislation and finally provide justice for thousands of deserving Vietnam veterans.
Thank you for continuing to support all of the men and women who served.
