VVA Applauds Passage of PACT Act of 2022

(Washington, D.C.) — “This evening, the Senate voted and passed the Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring Our PACT Act, and while this bill is not perfect, it is the long-overdue action we have needed which will allow veterans of so many generations to receive the care and treatment for the toxic wounds of war without having to endure the mistrust and denials that the Vietnam generation of veterans were forced to endure,” said Jack McManus, National President, Vietnam Veterans of America. “Now we must ensure that the law is implemented in a quick and just manner.”

“For over 40 years, VVA has steadfastly advocated for veterans living with chronic illnesses resulting from toxic exposures during their service,” said McManus. “All veterans have earned the comprehensive relief this bill offers them. For our aging Vietnam veterans, the speedy passage of this bill is especially important, not only for the care they desperately need, but as an acknowledgement the country recognizes and honors their service.”
