VFW Legislative Alert: Urge Senate to Pass Stolen Valor Act Today!


Take Action!

 
Background:  Earlier this week, the House overwhelmingly passed their version of the Stolen Valor Act(HR 258), which makes it a federal crime to profit from falsely identifying yourself as having received certain valorous military medals and awards.  The crime could include a fine and/or up to one year imprisonment.
 
The Senate bill, S. 210, now needs your support.
 
Action Needed:  Contact your two U.S. Senators today and urge them to pass S. 210, the Stolen Valor Actbefore Memorial Day. Tell them that America holds her military service members and veterans in high regard, and those who falsely identify themselves as war heroes in order to reap benefits should be punished!
 
Tell them to support our heroes and pass S. 210 today!
