American Legion Support for Blue Water Navy

The American Legion has twice passed resolutions in favor of changing and clarifying current wording in CFR 38 to define "service in Vietnam" to include "service in offshore waters" as was originally interpreted prior to 2002.

American Legion Resolution No. 214 from 2002

American Legion Resolution No.131 from 2006

The American Legion White Paper explaining their stance in support of the Blue Water Navy.

What we want to know is Who were these legislative changes submitted to and WHY weren't they introduced on the Senate Floor prior to Senator Akaka's S-2026 ??
