STATEMENT OF COL. PHELPS JONES (USA-RET.), DIRECTOR, NA
TIONAL SECURITY AND FOREIGN AFFAIRS, VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS, WASHINGTON, D.C.
Colonel Jones. Thank you very much.
Mr. Chairman and members of this distinguished committee, my name is Phelps Jones and I serve the more than 1.8 million members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) of the United States as their director of national security and foreign affairs.
I am pleased and honored to appear before this body to share with you the position of the VFW on the proposed treaties affecting the interoceanic canal and its framework, the U.S. Canal on the Isthmus of Panama.
Our National Commander in Chief, Dr. John Wasylik, of Sandusky, Ohio, has asked me to convey to you his appreciation for this opportunity.
VFW OPPOSITION TO TREATIES
Last month, Dr. Wasylik presented the VFW position to the Committee on International Relations of the U.S. House of Representatives. This September 16 statement covers, in detail, VFW rationale for opposing both the assumptions undergirding the U.S. negotiating position and the treaties which emerged from the negotiations.
To avoid pointless repetition, I request that the chairman include our national commander's earlier statement as part of the record of these proceedings.
Senator STONE. Without objection, that will be done.
