VVA to VA Secretary: Reverse Stay on Blue Water Navy Claims; Adjudicate Claims Under Procopio

(Washington, D.C.)—“Mr. Secretary, we are disappointed in your July 1, 2019, decision on the implementation of the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019, staying all Blue Water Navy claims until January 1, 2020,” wrote John Rowan, VVA National President, in a July 9 letter to VA Secretary Robert Wilkie. “Our Vietnam veterans, on average, are 73 years old. Time is of the essence, as a grant of benefits can mean life-saving healthcare.” On behalf of our Vietnam veterans, I implore you to reconsider your decision to stay all Blue Water Navy and Korea DMZ claims.”
