BLUE WATER NAVY ACT

CONTACT YOU CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVE TO PASS THIS IMPORTANT BILL


TREES FOR TROOPS

There’s nothing like the smell of a fresh tree to get you into the holiday spirit, and no one is more deserving of a little Christmas cheer than our service members and their families. Since 2005 the Trees for Troops program, run by the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation, has provided farm grown Christmas trees to our service members overseas and their families in the United States. 2017 is a banner year for the program, reaching more than 200,000 trees delivered and covering every branch of the military at close to 65 bases in 17 countries.


Take Action on Blue Water Navy bill

In July, the House of Representatives unanimously passed H.R. 299, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2018, to end the injustice of denying Vietnam, Korean DMZ, and Thailand veterans who suffer from life-threatening health conditions the care and benefits they deserve. This important bill continues to be stalled in the Senate. The VFW needs your help to make sure this bill is passed before the end of the year. If the Senate fails to do so, the bill will die and may never be considered again.
