DAV statement on Senate passage of the Honoring our PACT Act

posted on

DAV is ecstatic and grateful at the news of the Senate passage of the Honoring our PACT Act, which will provide millions of veterans who were exposed to burn pits, Agent Orange, radiation and other toxic substances access to the health care and benefits they earned in service to our nation. Our utmost appreciation goes to Chairman Tester and Ranking Member Moran of the Senate Veterans Affairs’ Committee, Chairman Takano and Ranking Member Bost of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, an incredible coalition of our fellow veterans service organizations, and countless advocates and supporters nationwide, including Jon Stewart, who worked to ensure generations of veterans made ill due to toxic exposures no longer have to wait for VA health care, services and other benefits. We look forward to President Biden signing this important legislation into law in the coming days.
