Action Alert: Tell Congress to Support the COST of War Act and the Honoring our PACT Act

VFW National Headquarters - 6/24/2021

Now is the time for Congress to pass comprehensive toxic exposure legislation. Veterans from all eras have experienced an array of unexplained health conditions and illnesses associated with the toxic exposures and environmental hazards they encountered in service. The burden of proof should never be placed on veterans. Congress must create a new framework for VA to grant benefits to these veterans. 

The VFW emphatically supports the COST of War Act and the Honoring our PACT Act, as they accomplish the VFW’s top legislative goal of comprehensive toxic exposure reform. These bills would help millions of veterans by establishing a framework to address any exposure, foreign or domestic, past, present, and future. This legislation would help atomic veterans, Vietnam veterans, including those who served in Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos, as well as in the Middle East, Afghanistan, K2, and beyond. They would add to VA’s list of presumptive conditions and provide health care for all toxic exposed veterans.
