Sign the Petition to

Our Congress and Senate

There are tens of thousands of Vietnam veterans who are sick with exposure to Agent Orange Dioxin. Many can not get Veterans Administration benefits because they did not have boots-on-ground Vietnam because they were at sea or in the air Vietnam, Just the same, they are sick and infected with the herbicide Agent Orange Dioxin. These veterans are dying at a

rate
of 500 to 700 a week and receive no help from our government. What legacy will they leave behind? Write a letter to the Veterans Affairs Committee chair person of the Congress and Senate. For Congress: Congressman Jeff Miller 335 Cannon House Office Bldg, Washington, DC 20515, Ph#202-225-4136. For Senate: Senator Patty Murray 448 Russell Senate office Bldg, Washington, DC 20510 Ph#202-224-2621. Then send this same letter with a brief plea to your State district member of US Congress and to both your State US Senators. We need the American people to urge their members of Congress and Senate to co-sign the Bills and have those Bills sent to the floor of both Houses for swift passage. Urge the VA committee chair member to send the bills to both Floors. Many Vietnam veterans are doomed to suffering if our legislators fail to act to afford some relief. THE 112th LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY HAS FAILED TO ACT ON BEHALF OF VIETNAM VETERANS..Once new Bills are introduce, I will update this petition.  GOOD NEWS:  A new House Bill has just been introduced.  Congressman Gibson of New York introduced House Bill HR-543 The Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act.  The Bill has been sent to Congressman Jeff Miller, Chairman of the Veteran's Affairs Committee.  Write or call Rep. Miller, his address and phone # is noted above, urge him to favor the Bill and send it to the Floor of Congress for a favorable vote of passage.  Likewise, urge your District member of Congress o favor the Bill.  The Power of the People. Please help, sign the petition and write your letters as well. Thank You.

Signed,

John Bury

A new House Bill HR-543 The Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act was re-introduce to the 113th legislative assembly, All is not lost, we pick up what is broken and fix it. HERE IS WHAT YOU AS AMERICANS CAN DO TO HELP. If you know of a Vietnam veteran who is sick and can not get VA benefits, ask all who you know to call Congress and Senate and demand positive action.  Congress and Senate need to be urged to do the right thing for our Vietnam Veterans who are sick. The Vietnam Veterans are the forgotten. Let our legislators know that the American people insist that they be recognized. By signing this petition, you will help many tens of thousands of Vietnam veterans who fought for Freedom. They ask for nothing more then to be recognized by our government and the American people. They deserve to be equally treated with respect. Laws need to be made so Vietnam veterans can be afforded full VA benefits. Most important they will know you care.

Contact
your member of Congress and Senate. Tell them to help Vietnam veterans. With the backing of the American people united as one voice, We will succeed. There is nothing more then a

heart
warming feeling knowing you helped veterans rights for better quality of life. "FREEDOM IS NOT FREE".. I will send the petition signatures to both the Congress and Senate and to the President. This will let our legislators know that We The People support our

Vietnam
veterans who are in need. Ask your friends to sign the petition. If you are on Facebook, post the petition to your FB page. You can also ask the Editor of your local newspaper to publish the petition. The petition can be found at www.causes.com by typing in the search
