JUSTICE FOR OUR HEROES TODAY: Co-sponsor the bipartisan H.R. 3429, the Repatriate Our Patriots Act, and bring our unjustly deported veterans home!

We are all forever indebted to the brave men and women who served in uniform. Yet when veterans who were legal permanent residents leave the service, after our military failed to properly process their citizenship applications, they are deported. Despite AMVETS,
one of our nation’s largest veteran service organizations, calling it a “stain on our country’s pride,” our government continues to deport honorably discharged veterans. Thousands of veterans who fought for our country are now exiled to countries they know
little to nothing about. It is our responsibility to right this wrong.

Become a Cosponsor of the Retain Act, H.R. 1185

constraints and no sunset. We are also concerned that this legislation would allow any president to unilaterally expand our wars indefinitely by omitting any sunset date and allowing the president to wage war against new groups or in new countries without
congressional authorization.

Join HVAC Leadership in Supporting VA Research into Medicinal Cannabis

While data is limited, the American Legion, a congressionally-chartered Veteran Service Organization, conducted a

survey in October 2017 on a portion of its approximately 2.2 million veteran members and found that 92% of all respondents support medical research regarding medicinal cannabis and 82% of all respondents support legalizing medicinal cannabis. The survey
also found that “22 percent of veterans are currently using cannabis to treat a medical condition.” Therefore, it is clear that medical research into the safety and efficacy of cannabis usage for medical purposes is timely, necessary, and widely supported
by the veteran community.
