We do what we do for the love of our soldiers, firefighters, police officers, first responders—all our loved ones in service.
We set across this great land from Texas to Kansas City, the Carolinas to St. Louis...to discover the secrets of great BBQ.
Every day we strive to serve you authentic BBQ made from the freshest, most delectable ingredients, and serve it to you in a patriotic dining room filled with tributes to those who've made Our Country great, given to us by the people who earned them.

VFW Blue Water Navy Vet Wins Federal Appeals Court Ruling / FWD (BCCd to VSOs)



From: Joe Davis 


VFW Blue Water Navy Vet Wins Federal Appeals Court Ruling
Court of law now joins court of public opinion
 
WASHINGTON (January 30, 2019) — The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reversed a decade-old ruling yesterday that potentially paves the way for the return of earned disability benefits for some 90,000 so-called Blue Water Navy veterans from the Vietnam War.
 
The case, Procopio v. Wilkie, was supported by the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States and a number of other veterans service organizations and advocates. It had Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert L. Wilkie Jr. being sued by Navy veteran and VFW life member Alfred Procopio Jr., who was denied service connection for prostate cancer and diabetes mellitus because he never stepped foot on dry land or served within Vietnam's inland waterways. Procopio, a life member of VFW Post 6587 in Spring Lake Park, Minn., was assigned aboard the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, which was stationed inside Vietnam's 12-mile territorial waters. Both of his illnesses are listed among the VA's 14 presumptive diseases associated with exposure to Agent Orange.
 
The Federal Appeals Court focused on the intent of the 1991 Agent Orange Act, which was to grant a presumption of service connection for certain diseases to veterans who "served in the Republic of Vietnam." At issue was whether service within territorial waters constituted service "in the Republic of Vietnam." By a 9-2 decision, the Appeals Court ruled it did.
 
"Although very pleased with the ruling, the VFW isn't quite ready to celebrate," said VFW National Commander B.J. Lawrence. "That's because the VA can always appeal the ruling and Congress has yet to pass a Blue Water Navy bill," he said. "But, it is very encouraging to now have a court of law support Blue Water Navy veterans along with the court of public opinion. We need to get this done and reinforce to tens of thousands of veterans that our nation does have your back when you come home from war.
 
"The VFW now calls on VA to make Blue Water Navy veterans whole as soon as possible, and we stand ready to assist VA in doing so."
