I pledge to call Senators Leahy and Reid to pass March 29th Vietnam Veterans Day

CONGRESS AND PRESIDENT HAVE FAILED TO FINALLY HONOR VIETNAM WAR AND ERA VETERANS AS WELL AS THEIR FAMILIES. YOU CAN HELP BY CALLING/WRITING/FAX THOSE WHO ARE NOT WILLING TO COMPLETE THE MISSION. In Congress a bill ("S.409 - A bill to add Vietnam Veterans Day as a patriotic and national observance" http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/s409  - introduced on February 28 of 2013 and U.S. House Resolution "H.Res.235: Expressing support for designation of March 29 as Vietnam Veterans Day"  http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/s409 and establish this day as a perpetual tribute for the sacrifice and service of those who died and served during the Vietnam War and its Era as well as their families. It has been held up by Senator Leahy (Vermont and Judiciary Committee Chairman) and Senator Harry Reid (Nevada and Senate Majority Leader) even though requested numerous times to deliver this long overdue honor. President Obama proclaimed March 29th 2012 as Vietnam Veterans Day but failed to remember the Vietnam Veterans in 2013 on the occasion of the 40th anniversary since the Vietnam War ended with the last combat troops withdrawn on March 29th 1973. There is no excuse since cost is not an issue for this special day, no budget to argue over and it was a grave failure since it was a unique opportunity to help a generation of Veterans and their families as well as our nation heal during these combative times among our political leaders.  Please call the state and federal offices of Senator Leahy and Senator Reid, let them know that this is long overdue and needs to be accomplished now before another Veteran or their family member leave this world without experiencing our country's and our fellow citizens gratitude and respect. Please send us an e-mail once you had completed calling or writing them, our contact information: [email protected] or write to Equal Honor For All P.O. Box 32070 Cleveland, Ohio 44132-0070 * More information on this cause can be found at http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/s409 and further down in this comment
