House Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Health
Holds Hearing on H.R. 5484,
The Toxic Exposure Research Act of 2014

On Wednesday, November 19, 2014, Vietnam Veterans of America National President John Rowan will present testimony before the House Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Health regarding H.R. 5484, The Toxic  Exposure  Research Act of 2014, introduced by Representative Dan Benishek (MI-1). VVA strongly supports this bill, which reflects positively on one of our foremost legislative goals. Not only would it help achieve a measure of justice for the innocent victims of the use of toxic substances in times of war, but it offers unlimited possibilities for scientific research into the effects of these toxic chemicals.

The hearing will be televised on the committees website at http://veterans.house.gov/ and begins at2:00pm.

We urge you to go to our Legislative Action Center site at http://capwiz.com/vva/home/  and Take Action NOW by entering your zip code and sending the prepared letter to your U.S. Representative, asking them to join their colleagues— Honda (CA-17); Brownley (CA-26); Conyers (MI-13); Higgings (NY-26); Rahall (WV-3); LoBiondo (NJ-2); Wallberg (MI-7); Jones (NC-3); Latta (OH-5); Ruppersberger (MD-2); Roby (NH-1); and Shea-Porter (AL-2)—and sign on as a co-sponsor to H.R. 5484, the Toxic Exposure Research Act of 2014.

    My daughter has diseases from agent orange and my son also . Their Father served two tours in Nam. He died at age 50 due to cancer from Agent Orange. Our children were so young 3 1/2 and 5 years young. Please pass this bill. Our Veterans have suffered and now their children continue to suffer emotionally and physically as well as mentally. Sincerely Patricia L Skubish.
