I am fully behind the repeal of "Feres" it was bad law when they created it in 1950 and it's still wrong today besides I have a damn good lawsuit if they ever repeal it lol

YES-plenty of vets and active military might be able to sue under Feres if this goes through-

I hope many will take time to write to their Congressmen/women and Seantors for support for this.

It would be a tremendous victory but I wonder how far this will get.

Berta it's the people like me that scare them from opening the door they know there are tens of thousands of us waiting for that day, I doubt if they ever really repeal it until all of the Nam vets (AO) and the Cold War nuke/CBR experiments/ any other programs that harmed veterans are dead the liability is to great
