BLUE WATER NAVY VIETNAM VETE...

Helping Veterans Fight!

If you think all Vietnam Veterans are receiving service-connected VA Health Care for exposure to Agent Orange, you are wrong........ Members of the United States Navy, Coast Guard and Fleet Marines who served offshore Vietnam, with no contact with the land, have been removed by the VA from their coverage under the Agent Orange Act of 1991, and are denied Health Care and compensation benefits for all herbicide-related diseases and disabilities - the exact same diseases and disabilities providing full benefits to veterans whose feet touched the soil of Vietnam. Our organization is going to close this loophole. We're fighting for our Vets. After all, they fought for us!

Our Vets fought for us.  This is our chance to fight for them. Our organization is working on closing a loophole to ensure all Vets impacted by Agent Orange receive their health and financial benefits.

Here's a quick story to give you more of a feel as to why we are fighting. This video reported was completed by an ABC affiliate. http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?section=news/abc11_investigates&id=6395910

The Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act was introduced to the House Floor by Rep. Chris Gibson (D-NY) along with 41 strongly bipartisan initial co-sponsors on February 6, 2013. This legislation will return the presumption of exposure to herbicide to Navy and Marine veterans who served in the off shore waters of Vietnam. HR-543 now replaces HR-3612, which was the number used by the previous 112th Congress.

However, we have encountered roadblock after roadblock. We need your support to help us close the loophole and get benefits to our Vets. Our organization hosts various reports, educational information, resources and more on our website!  Please feel free to read the documentation and become involved.
