Representative Gus Bilirakis (FL) introduced H.R. 936, a bill that would permit veterans who have service-connected, total and permanent disabilities to travel on military aircraft in the same manner and to the same extent as retired members of the armed forces are entitled to such travel.
This bill would afford priority to totally disabled veterans for transportation on scheduled and unscheduled military flights within the continental United States and on scheduled overseas flights operated by the Air Mobility Command, on a space-available basis. This measure is in accordance with DAV Resolution No. 223, which seeks the enactment of legislation to extend space-available air travel aboard military aircraft to all service-connected veterans entitled to receive compensation at the 100-percent rate.
Please use the prepared e-mail or draft your own message to request that your Representative cosponsor this important bill and ask that the measure be brought to the floor for a vote and passed as soon as possible.
Thank you for all you do for ill and injured veterans and their families.
