OPERATION STAND TOGETHER represents the collective interests of United States military veterans and their families, who seek to raise awareness to chronic, life-long illnesses and disabling conditions directly resulting from nuclear, biological, and chemical toxin exposures during their active duty service. To that end, we welcome members from all branches of service, as well as their family members. By raising awareness and respectfully voicing our experiences and concerns in an organized, patriotic, and democratic manner, our goal is to significantly improve the lives of those affected through national recognition, legislative reform, healthcare assistance, and disability compensation for those in need.
A culmination of this effort will be a one-day event, which is tentatively being planned for May 20, 2017 on the National Mall, Washington, D.C. The family-friendly event is anticipated to include: a variety of musical entertainment, guest speakers (i.e., affected Veterans, Veteran Service Organization representatives, health officials, Congressional members who have supported legislation for creating health registries for toxic veterans/dependents), and information tents for Veteran Service Organizations offering assistance for filing claims to the VA.
