Tomorrow, Tuesday, May 14, H.R. 299, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019, is scheduled for a vote on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. Please contact your elected Representative today to ask for their vote to approve H.R. 299. As you know, during the 115th Congress, Blue Water Navy legislation passed the House by a vote of 382 to 0; however, the bill was not successful in the Senate. The Blue Water Navy veteran legislation was re-introduced with bipartisan support in the 116th Congress. H.R. 299 will correct the longstanding injustice done to Blue Water Navy veterans and grant them exposure to Agent Orange. It will also expand benefits for Korean DMZ veterans who suffer from diseases and illnesses directly linked to Agent Orange and allow coverage for those children suffering from spina bifida because of their parents' exposure to Agent Orange while serving in Thailand during the Vietnam War.
