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.
DAV statement on Senate passage of the 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 than 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.
