April 2020
Washington D.C. Conference

Comrades,

I was at the Washington D.C. Conference in the middle of March. What a trip, we had a full day of training, lectures and information given to us, not only by National, but also members of the U.S. Everyone is full of information.

Items discussed by the VA included,
Toxic Exposure and Burn Pits
Health Care for Women Veterans
Suicide-prevention efforts

National Security discussed items are:
Pay the Coast Guard during Government shutdowns
Helping the Homeless Veterans
Support for the Gold Star Families
Reaffirm Commitment to our Allies

Best part was visiting the local Florida State Representatives the next day, I went to the offices of Matt Gaetz and AL Lawson. While the house was in session and I was not able to speak with them, their staff was open and helpful. They also explain that the House is already working on many of the problems I noted, and hope to come to a resolution soon, and thankful that the American Legion is concern about those same issues. It is nice to know that the American Legion is still acknowledged in the Halls of Congress.
