Rally will put needed spotlight on toxic exposure among veterans

Popular

Saturday, veterans and supporters are making their voices heard at Operation Stand Together, a one-day rally in Washington, D.C., led by veterans, military families and others from around the country to urge action on the issue of toxic exposure and water contamination. 

The event will urge leaders in Washington to finally take comprehensive action to aid the hundreds of thousands (and likely millions) of veterans who have been exposed to toxic chemicals and become ill due to their service to the nation. Congressional leadership and key guest speakers from the veteran and health communities will be rallying their support at the Sylvan Theater on the National Mall; more information is available at  OperationStandTogether.org.
