VFW ACTION ALERT
A procedural issue required Congress to amend and pass the PACT Act again. The House has done its job and passed the bill with bipartisan support. Every day this bill is delayed means another day a veteran could get sick and die. The Senate must stop any further delays and immediately pass the Honoring our PACT Act.
This comprehensive legislation would help millions of toxic-exposed veterans receive VA health care and benefits. This bill is supported by more than 60 veteran organizations. It would create a concession of exposure for burn pits and airborne hazards, establish a list of presumptive conditions, and provide a framework for assessing future conditions linked to any toxic exposure, foreign or domestic, past, present, and future.
Contact Senators Crapo and Risch and tell them no more delays, no more amendments. They must bring the Honoring our PACT Act to the floor immediately and vote YES. Sick veterans cannot afford to wait any longer for health care and benefits. The Senate must act now!

Our National VFW organization is working hard to protect those benefits and entitlements that we have earned through our military service to our nation. To make this program successful, we need as many of you as possible to participate and get involved as a "Veterans Advocate." The purpose of this program is to inform our members of the issues so we can take action by contacting (writing letters, sending emails, making phone calls, attending town hall meetings, etc.) our legislators on issues affecting veterans, active duty service members and our families. Our elected officials need to hear from us. If they don't, they will assume that it isn't important to us, make the decisions for us, and we will have to live with the consequences.
