FAIRNESS FOR VETERANS OF OPERATION NEW DAWN!

 

Dear Colleague:

Please join me in supporting H.R. 804, legislation that would ensure that military service in Operation New Dawn continues to be considered service in a theater of operations for purpose of access to Department of Veterans Affairs health care. 

In September 2010, Operation Iraqi Freedom was changed to Operation New Dawn.  H.R. 804 would consider military service in Operation New Dawn as service in a theater of operations, for purposes of eligibility for veterans’ hospital and nursing home care and medical services through the Department of Veterans Affairs.  Join me in support of H.R. 804 and help make certain that veterans would not be denied access to certain programs because of the way the law is currently written.
 
If you would like further information or to sign on as a co-sponsor of this important piece of legislation, please contact Jian Zapata of my staff.

Sincerely,
