One more time.
  • When you forward an e-mail, DELETE all of the other addresses that appear in the body of the message (at the top). That's right, DELETE them. Highlight them and delete them, backspace them, cut them, whatever it is you know how to do. It only takes a second. You MUST click the "Forward" button first and then you will have full editing capabilities against the body and headers of the message. If you don't click on "Forward" first, you won't be able to edit the message at all.
  • Whenever you send an e-mail to more than one person, do NOT use the To: or Cc: fields for adding e-mail addresses. Always use the BCC:(blind carbon copy) field for listing the e-mail addresses. This is the way the people you send to will only see their own e-mail addresses. If you don't see your BCC: option, click on where it says To: and your address list will appear. Highlight the address and choose BCC:. That's it, it's that easy. When you send to BCC: your message will automatically say "Undisclosed Recipients in the "TO:" field of the people who receive it.
  • Remove any "FW:" in the subject line. You can re-name the subject if you wish or even fix spelling and take all the junk like emoticons off the end of the e-mail as well.
  • Feel free to attach the following graphic to your outgoing emails.

take a knee

What do you think about the athletes who "take a knee" rather that stand for the patriotic services before sporting events? See this article attributed to Ted Nugent and titled Take a Knee.

House Approves Agent Orange Bill

  [Posted 06/26/18]
The House has amended and approved (382-0) the House version of the “Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act” (H.R.299). The bill now will go to the Senate for further consideration.
The original proposal would clarify that service members serving off the coast of the Republic of Vietnam during the Vietnam conflict have a presumption for filing disability claims with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for ailments associated with exposure to the Agent Orange herbicide. The House bill has been amended to include certain veterans that served in Korea near the demilitarized zone and in Thailand.
FRA believes Congress should recognize these veterans were exposed to Agent Orange herbicide and authorize presumptive status for VA disability claims associated with this exposure.
Now is the time to contact your Senators to ask them to support this bill.
