Agent Orange/Blue Water Offset - Survey

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

FRA supports the “Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act” (H.R. 299/S. 422), sponsored by Rep. David Valadao (CA) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) respectively. These bills would allow “Blue Water” veterans who served off the coast of Vietnam to be compensated for service connected disabilities related to their exposure to Agent Orange herbicide. Legislators want to pass the “Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act” (H.R. 299/S. 422)  but need a cost offset. They have suggested rounding down to the nearest dollar monthly veterans benefits. Please let us know if think we should support this proposal.
