If anyone knows of help in the Agent Orange area, any response would be helpful. How do you get people to acknowledge abuse until the abuse has killed you? I don't want to get a 'sorry' with a burial check. Why can this Government do anything but half way acknowledge there was abuse to the Veterans by the military higher ups. What happened to the Agent Orange settlement; paid out to attorney's and those who were already dead from the exposure.... Grateful for what little they did do, it did...

What happened to the Agent Orange settlement; paid out to attorney's and those who were already dead from the exposure.... Grateful for what little they did do, it did help a few; but what about those 'living' with the remnants of this exposure.... just suffer through it? I wish there were a Civil Court for individual soldiers then the 'with out a doubt' would be out of the conversation.... Oh yes, about those V.A. doctors? Why do they have the right to tell a veteran and their family one commentary and then turn around and write down an opposite one in their file? I will take a lie detector on that one.... truly, they/he lied. How do you expose these things?

I can't pretend to know what your family has been through. I can only try and empathize like I empathize with the Vietnamese. An apology won't cut it. But it will open the gates to enquiries and debate and that will lead to information, awareness and accountability.

Napalm, gang rapes and destruction of Buddhist equivalent of churches that date back hundreds if not thousands of years. Burning of villages, chemical warfare that peeled the skin off Vietnamese, including children. Why is it that white lives are still considered more important than black or brown or yellow lives? It is still happening! One royal baby versus hundreds killed in drone strikes. And even at a personal level, "white power" is still an undercurrent. Why? I thought we have evolved beyond all this!

OBVIOUSLY, Mr. President, you never had to fight for your country. I am an agent orange exposed veteran with diabetes after spending 11/2 years in Vietnam and can't believe the comments you have made! Maybe you should think before you speak!

Amen for that Terry!!! I agree 100% about obama not being a citzen of USA & should not be "OUR" President!!! He needs to go back to his country where he came from. After hearing him say how "HE HATES AMERICANS" in the video he made with him & his muslims friends, I am so afraid of what he's going to do while in "OUR WHITE HOUSE"........GO BACK TO KENYA obama!!!!!!

The people incharge of our government today are the same people who disrespected us, protested us, and spit on some of us. Very Sad time for America. We are being Ruled by Evil people who were voted into office by Illiterate Voters. God Help us all.

I served in Vietnam and it was not a misunderstanding. Ho Chi Mihn and his NLF and VC were terrorists and murderers.
