"No need to apologize, Jeff.  The amendment can't be found in any current drafts, so it's quite reasonable to conclude it's gone and forgotten.  We must simply wait and see if Senator McCain decides to drop his resistance or…"

"True I am sorry to jump the gun and declare 566 dead. It was immaculate and I apologise. About Sen. Mc Caine being the one who is against us all I can say is what happened to this poor guy?"

"Jeff, thanks for the message and support. I just talked to Congressman Graves' office, and it seems House Amendment 566 isn't dead yet, but surely we have no help from the Senate. I'm stunned to learn the main roadblock is from…"

"Michael, if I may call so that, it appears to me that amendment 566 has been shelved. The conferees don't appear to even be considering it for the final draft. Thank you for your efforts and that of your congressman and his legislative man. You…"

Mark 

the information you provided was great.  I must have miss read you article.  I was never in country or had boots in the ground in vietnam.  I was on three operations during  the periods from 1973 to 1975.  I guess i will have to wait on congress to pass the bills for blue  water sailors during the vitenam war.  There are couple 299 and 696.
