Congress to view 'Semper Fi: Always Faithful'

Note From Mike Partain @

Next week the Camp Lejeune documentary, Semper Fi: Always Faithful, will show at the Silverdocs film festival near Washington D.C. On Thursday night there will be a special screening of the film on Capitol Hill for members of Congress and their staff.
This screening is especially important because on Monday 29 June, S-277 will be one of the bills up for a vote in the Senate Veteran Affairs Committee (SVAC). We urge all of our members to contact their U.S. Senators and request they and their staff attend the viewing of the documentary on Tuesday 23 June at 7PM. We also encourage you to contact your U.S. Representative and request they attend the viewing as well. Please see the link below for a copy of the information flyer.
Last year S-1518 was killed in committee. Now a year later, Senator Burr has kept his promise. Once again the Caring for Camp Lejeune Veterans Act is poised for another vote in the SVAC. If S-277 successfully clears the SVAC, it can proceed to the Senate for a full vote. It is time for all of us to act by showing our support. This bill will be a crucial first step in resolving our issue and will not succeed without everyone's support.
