Honoring Those Who Gave Their Lives With Actions For The Living and Not Words

vfw_logo_high_res_4qdoThe VFW reports in its Action Corps Weekly of 25 May , as the other 27 veterans organizations which supported this action certainly will:

On Wednesday, with a vote of 92-5, the Senate overwhelmingly passed S. 2372, the VA MISSION Act of 2018. The VFW thanks the Senators who put veterans first and voted in favor of this important bill, which is the result of bipartisan and bicameral work by members of the Senate and House Committees on Veterans’ Affairs to improve VA health care, expand caregiver benefits to pre-9/11 veterans, fix the Choice Program, consolidate VA’s confusing community care programs and improve VA’s infrastructure to better serve veterans. The bill now heads to the White House. President Trump has announced he will sign it …

The link above lists the key provisions of the act.  The passage of this act also speaks to the continuing relevance of the old-line organizations in looking out for those who have served.  Our fallen comrades would have wanted us to take care of those left behind.

Hopefully, the Blue Water Navy Act will now receive equal consideration.  It has been long overdue.
