VETERANS EXPOSED TO BURN PITS STRUGGLE TO GET CARE
DAV Fights for Veterans and Service Members Exposed to Burn Pits
Shane Liermann, Deputy National Legislative Director, DAV
Burn pits have been used at U.S. military installations for many years. These are designated areas dedicated to burning everything from human waste to excess equipment and other trash. Burn pits have exposed as many as 3.5 million and counting service men and women to toxic fumes.
- When active-duty military and veterans who served on bases with burn pits began to suffer with severe asthma, undiagnosable and debilitating coughs, and started dying from early onset cancers, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) denied burn pit exposure as an issue and left many without the care and benefits they needed.
- DAV (Disabled American Veterans) has been working to bring the issue of toxic burn pit exposure to light for two decades. In fact, DAV was one of the first groups to fight to create a Burn Pit Registry back in 2008 for tracking service members who were stationed near burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan, setting the stage for the legislation now moving through Congress.
- Both the Senate and House Committees on Veterans’ Affairs recently unveiled legislation to provide comprehensive health care and disability benefits for veterans of all generations exposed to toxic substances, including burn pits and Agent Orange. Passage of these bills would be the most significant federal action in decades.
- It also requires VA to submit a biannual report to Congress identifying how many veterans report burn pit exposure; how many veterans file VA disability claims and the outcome of those claims; a comprehensive list of conditions for which burn pit-exposed veterans seek treatment; the reported location of burn pits and whether veterans died after seeking care for an illness related to such toxic exposure.
- DAV is fighting for this historic bill’s passage through Congress to support veterans exposed to toxic substances with the care they need, deserve and earned with their service to our nation. For more information go to DAV.org/burnpits

Parents Need to Abandon the Idea of Running for School Boards and trying to reform our Pblic Schools.
Winning a school board position isn’t a cake walk. Unions have a grip on the process. Often, candidates are union members or their races are funded by union donations.
“I’m sure Betsy Devos is a nice lady but I can’t think of anything she did which will have any lasting impact on our public schools.” – Lt. Col (Ret) Ray Moore.
- Efforts to reform their school districts have been fruitless and a waste of time, money and energy.
- Even with the very few examples where conservative actually controlled the school board, their reforms were undermined and, as soon as they left office, they were repealed.
- Over the last 100 years, education policy has been controlled by unelected education bureaucrats at both the state and federal levels.
- The notion of “locally-controlled” schools is a myth and there hasn’t really been any truly locally-controlled schools in generations.
- There are thousands of state and federal mandates that control every aspect of education policy including sex ed, curriculum, academic standards, tenure, hiring, special ed, and on and on.

7:35 Kenny Xu – author of An Inconvenient Minority: The Attack on Asian American Excellence and the Fight for Meritocracy
From a journalist on the frontlines of the Students for Fair Admission (SFFA) v. Harvard case comes a probing examination of affirmative action, the false narrative of American meritocracy, and the attack on Asian American excellence with its far-reaching implications―from seedy test-prep centers to gleaming gifted-and-talented magnet schools, to top colleges and elite business, media, and political positions across America
Even in the midst of a nationwide surge of bias and incidents against them, Asians from coast to coast have quietly assumed mastery of the nation’s technical and intellectual machinery and become essential American workers. Yet, they’ve been forced to do so in the face of policy proposals―written in the name of diversity―excluding them from the upper ranks of the elite.
In An Inconvenient Minority, journalist Kenny Xu traces elite America’s longstanding unease about a minority potentially upending them. Leftist agendas, such as eliminating standardized testing, doling out racial advantages to “preferred” minorities, and lumping Asians into “privileged” categories despite their deprived historical experiences have spurred Asian Americans to act.

Hellgate Jetboat Excursions
By Dennis Powers
In 1980, Robert Hamlyn and his wife traveled thoughout the Pacific Northwest in their motor home. After spending several days in Grants Pass, they sold their Southern California home and moved there. First owning and operating an equipment rental business in Grants Pass, they sold it when Robert was managing Rogue Jet Boat Excursions. In 1988, he purchased Hellgate Jetboat Excursions and merged the two operations together. The business has prospered over the years to where it now employs over 100 staff members during its peak season and is the Pacific Northwest’s #1 River Trip.
Hellgate Jetboat Excursions dates back to 1959 with Grant Garcia; two years later, he began using a flat-bottomed, 32-passenger wooden boat on the 35-mile round-trip from the Bridge Motel in Grants Pass to the Hellgate Recreational Area. His boat could operate in as little as six inches of water due to its water-jet propulsion system. The ticket price then was $4 for adults and $2 for children under 12 on three-times-a-day trips. The Hellgate is a narrow, deep canyon with sheer rock walls that rise over 250 feet above the river and its boiling rapids.
Thirteen years later, Gary and Julie Woolsey bought the business and greatly expanded its operations. In the ten years to 1987, they built seven boats (from smaller ones with a 16-passenger capacity to ones that carried 82 people), all being propeller-less with a hydro-jet system. The Grants Pass departure point moved from the Riverside Inn to Riverside Park, and they introduced brunch and dinner stops on different trips. The Woolseys brought in the OK Corral as the dining facility and added a 5-1/2 hour, 75-mile round-trip to Grave Creek with a lunch stop at Galice.
In 1985, the owners of the Riverside Inn started Rogue Whitewater Excursions, a competitor to Hellgate. One year later, they hired Hamlyn to manage its problematic operations, and he soon changed the rival’s name to Rogue Jetboat Excursions. Robert Hamlyn then bought both and merged the competing operations into the present company and its name.
Hellgate designs and manufactures its jet boats in Grants Pass through its Katanacraft operations. It has added numerous new vessels since then with improvements on each one: a windshield with wipers, so pilots could see the river more clearly; more efficient pumps to improve fuel efficiency; and internal speakers so passengers could always hear the pilot. Moreover, Katanacraft creates aluminum vessels for deep and shallow depths, along with small craft boats and floating docks.
The OK Corral was renovated in 2005, and the 12,000 square-foot, open-air facility by the Rogue River—where osprey, bald eagle, and deer sightings are common—is reserved exclusively for Hellgate guests. Located 18 miles west of Grants Pass, up to 350 people can dine at a time after traveling past rocky beaches and sheer cliffs.
Its Shop River Rock gift store is located within the reservation facilities, open year-round, and is more than 6,000 square feet. The season is from May to mid-September, depending on the trip, and over one million passengers (over 85,000 per season) have overall enjoyed these trips.
