This Blog is being made to help bring information to other so that they know about a problem with Agent Orange that some US Navy Veterans referred to as the Blue Water Navy may have.   

Nearly half of the surviving hundred thousand members of the United State Navy and Fleet Marine services who served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1975 may currently be suffering disabilities from the effects of dioxin, found in Agent Orange. These service members are now being denied all service connected health care from the VA and disability compensation for these diseases by the Department of Veterans Affairs. A bill, H.R. 543 was hidden in committee with  over 250 co-sponsors, meaning that 250 of the 435 members of the 113th House of Representatives did supported the bill. Yet they did not bring it to the floor of the 113th Congress so that the full House could vote on it. Let us hope that in the 114th session of Congress that they do induce and new bill and pass it.
