DAV is pleased with the announcement last night that leaders of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee have reached agreement on the Honoring our PACT Act and calls on all Senators to support this long overdue legislation. DAV and a coalition of veterans organizations have worked for years to develop and pass comprehensive military toxic exposure legislation to ensure every generation of veterans exposed to burn pits and other battlefield toxins receive the medical care and disability benefits they have earned. This breakthrough announcement is a major step toward moving the PACT Act through Congress and onto the president’s desk for his signature. We are grateful to Sens. Tester and Moran for their bipartisan leadership on this critical issue to ensure our nation’s promises are kept to America’s disabled veterans.
DAV statement on Senate agreement on Honoring our PACT Act
DAV is an organization of veterans helping veterans.
The reasons are as individual as our members. Some join for the fellowship at our more 1,200 local chapters. Some for the inspiring national events. Others for opportunities to serve their fellow veterans and their families. And many join to continue the fight to support the rights and benefits of all veterans. DAV understands the needs of veterans because we are veterans—1 million strong. We invite you to join our cause.
