House Passes Bill !! Need Your Support In Senate

COMBAT AEROMEDIC BADGE


URGENT ALERT!!!!!

FROM JOHN TRAVERS
PRESIDENT
VIETNAM VETERANS OF AMERICA
CAPITAL CHAPTER 542
HARRISBURG, PA


U. S. Congressmen Tim Holden (D-PA) and Joseph Pitts (R-PA), sponsors of HB1308 directing the Army to create a new Combat Aeromedic Badge for DUSTOFF crewmembers from Korea to today, have succeeded in having that language inserted into HR1815, the Defense Department Authorization bill.

The bill is scheduled to pass the House of Representatives today (May 25, 2005!)

The two Congressmen approached Congressman Geoff Davis (R-KY)
for support and the three then approached Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee with an amendment which was put into the bill in committee with all members voting in favor.  Congressman Davis, a freshman, served as a helicopter pilot in the Army.

NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACTION!!!!!

CALL, WRITE, OR E-MAIL YOUR UNITED STATES SENATORS---TELL THEM YOU WANT THEM TO PROVIDE LEADERSHIP IN SEEING THAT THIS LANGUAGE IS PRESERVED IN THE FINAL BILL SENT TO THE PRESIDENT.

THIS IS AN ACID TEST!!  

IT IS SIMPLE FOR THEM TO PRESSURE THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE THAT WILL PUT TOGETHER THE FINAL BILL TO KEEP THIS LANGUAGE IN PLACE!!!

YOU CAN FIND YOUR TWO U.S. SENATORS BY GOING TO WWW.SENATE.GOV

PLEASE DO THIS RIGHT NOW!!

THEN, REMEMBER TO THANK CONGRESSMEN HOLDEN, PITTS, GEOFF DAVIS, AND CHAIRMAN DUNCAN HUNTER FOR THEIR COURAGEOUS ACTIONS ON BEHALF OF ALL DUSTOFF CREWMEMBERS, INCLUDING THE 213 ON THE WALL AND THOSE WHO PERISHED IN DESERT STORM AND IRAQI FREEDOM.
