Wounded Warrior Project Testifies Before Senate and House Veterans' Affairs Committees on Toxic Exposure Legislation


WASHINGTON, May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) government affairs specialist Aleks Morosky recently testified before the Senate and House Committees on Veterans' Affairs, encouraging Congress to take action on toxic exposure legislation. The health issues caused by burn pits and other toxic chemicals remain a critical issue facing post-9/11 wounded veterans ? and a top legislative priority for WWP.

"Wounded Warrior Project believes that veterans of all eras who suffered toxic exposures deserve access to lifesaving health care and a system that requires VA to respond to scientific data in a timely, transparent manner," Morosky said. "We're pleased with the legislation that has been introduced to reform these problems. However, time is of the essence; these warriors are sick, and some are dying, waiting for the care they have earned. We call upon Congress to pass these important bills without delay."
