LEGISLATIVE

 


TELL CONGRESS!

TAKE ACTION NOW

ON VFW-SUPPORTED TOXIC EXPOSURE BILLS

 

 

In June, the House and Senate Committees on Veterans’ Affairs introduced comprehensive legislation on toxic exposure addressing the VFW’s top legislative priority. The House bill is the Honoring our PACT Act and the Senate bill is the COST of War Act. If you haven’t already done so, we encourage all veterans, family members, friends, and supporters to Take Action Now. Spread the word so that as many people as possible will contact their senators and representatives to support these important pieces of legislation!

BECOME A VETERANS' ADVOCATE

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.

  • To become a "Veterans Advocate," join the VFW Action Corps by clicking on http://capwiz.com/vfw/mlm/signup.htm.  By doing so, you will receive the Washington Weekly E-Newsletter and all VFW Action Alerts.
  • To report on Veterans activities in your area, such as legislative events, town halls, veteran’s advisory committees, rallies, etc., send an email briefly describing the event or activity to Bob Jones, the Department of Idaho's Legislative Committee Member, at arcticcirclerexb@aol.com.
  • To seek answers to questions you may have on legislative issues, or obtain more information, write to Comrade Jones at the above email address, or phone him at Tel. 208-356-0255.
Thanks for all you have done and all you continue to do for Veterans and their families.
