That's right NO Nicholson he went to Vietnam and two other countrys on a tour before he resings his position. I herd Congressman Bob Filner may return to the House Chair as the lead chair on the Veterans Affaris Committee. I did drop off the same press package with dvd to 13 Congressman including Congressman Filner and actualy had words with Congressman John P Murtha in his office on the 3rd day of the event when I had about 1 hour to roam around in the Rayburn Building before my Taxi left for the airport. When I told Congressman Murtha about H.R.1917 he told me he would do somthing about it and get ahold of Congressman Filner so with those two teamed up it will be interesting to see how many more jump on board to support Congressman Bob Filner on H.R.1917. Here is the list of contacts inside the Rayburn building that I have given our press release to with a dvd. All these contacts are susposed to be working with us now on H.R.1917 as they review the press package and dvd.
1. Congressman Bob Filner, contact Daniel Hattis staff assistant to Filner (202) 225-8045/fax (202) 225-9073 also Ms Sharon Shultz I know is the first contact with Congressman Filner in the Rayburn building.2423 Rayburn HOB Washington DC 20515

3: From the Veterans Affairs Committee standing in for Congressman Nicholson and I might say did a good job listening to all the veterans in the meeting and about 100 of us showed up for this meeting that lasted for a few hours. I trust these contacts will pull forward on H.R.1917 as the BVA SIGNED SEALED Resoulution carried alot of weight to supporting H/R 1917 fully as that board of directors from the California Veterans Board supported veterans fully on this manner and must be signed into legislation.

So Secretary Nicholson was not there himself?
Maybe 500 standing around on the White House Lawn Tuesday for the speaches and there were about 30 or 40 who spoke on the issues and it was very interesting we had veterans from all wars including WWII guys who spoke Some from Korea war and Vietnam wars. I did not see any veterans from the Iraq wars. and Starbust radio covered the event nicely..
Wendsday we had the meetings in the Cannon House building and I spoke on H.R. 1917 and that meeting had about 100 veterans attending the conference with Secretary Nicholson staff. and that was good as we covered alot of different issues collectivally.
