As we head into the second session of the 117th Congress, pressure is mounting and time is running short to pass comprehensive reforms for toxic exposures. The two omnibus packages proposed by the Senate and House have large price tags given the size and scope of the affected veteran populations. MOAA remains committed to ensuring these changes are made, and we need your help to encourage Congress to pass these necessary reforms this year.


If you or someone you know has been harmed by toxic exposure while in service domestically or overseas, or suspects toxic exposures played a role in a current health condition, we want to hear your story. We are collecting stories from all generations to share in testimony, articles, and other MOAA publications to help our advocacy efforts.




While sharing the hard facts is important in any policy discussion, adding a personal story from a servicemember, veteran, caregiver, or survivor helps bring the message home. Please take the time to tell us your story, good or bad, and to share with others who have been harmed by toxic exposures.


You can begin the process by visiting this link, part of MOAA’s new Legislative Action Center. Thank you in advance for engaging with MOAA on this critical issue, at this critical legislative juncture.
