Hi Disabled American Veterans Chapter #13 Team
Chairman, Armed Services Committee; Mac Thornberry, Ranking member, House Armed Services Committee; Senator James Inhofe, Chairman, Senate Armed Services Committee; and Jack Reed, Ranking Member, Senate Armed Services Committee–to retain the bipartisan Harder/Tester amendment that added three diseases, bladder cancer, hypothyroidism, and Parkinsonism as service-connected conditions.
Each of these diseases has met the scientific threshold of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, to be credibly linked to Agent Orange. What remains is the addition of these conditions to the list of Agent Orange-presumptive diseases.
First come first serve; there will be no appointments.
Social distancing will be practiced at all times.
There will only be two Claim Service Officers (CSO) in the office at a given day.
CSOs will only be available from 0900-1400.
Each CSO will work with one visitor at a time.
After checking in, all visitors will wait outside until a CSO calls them in.
Once inside please use the hand sanitizer at the front desk before you sign in.
All visitors must wear a mask and the mask must be provided by the visitor.
If you have a fever, a cough, or any symptoms relative to a cold, flu or corona virus, please stay home because you will not be allowed in.
If you have been exposed to someone with the corona virus, please do not come unless you have been quarantined for 14 days.
There will be no congregating in the Chapter #13 office by members. The round table where most veterans sit and visit will only allow three members at a time and they will practice social distancing.
The kitchen will be closed until further notice.
