i am a veteran who served in korea and we need all the help for our veterans we can get. I am a breast cancer advocate because i would not allow my cancer to take me out! Being in the military gave me the drive and determination to never quit! There is no excuse not to be helping our soldiers who our fighting for Your freedom. Getting there body parts blown off for you and we can spend money and bullshit programs but we cant take care of our men and women like me who on their free will chose...

i am a veteran who served in korea and we need all the help for our veterans we can get. I am a breast cancer advocate because i would not allow my cancer to take me out! Being in the military gave me the drive and determination to never quit! There is no excuse not to be helping our soldiers who our fighting for Your freedom. Getting there body parts blown off for you and we can spend money and bullshit programs but we cant take care of our men and women like me who on their free will chose to serve and protect to very lawmakers who are basically deciding not to help them why they sleep very comfortably in there million dollar homes while a good majority of our vets are homeless! Wake the hell up you better hope people in congress and in the senate it doesnt happen to one of your kids. I was a reseacher a one of the finest research hospitals in NE in I was diagnosed with Stage 3B Breast Cancer with 14 lymph Nodes also being positive with cancer. This is a very bad cancer. I had to quit my job and go on medicaid. Because the chemotherapy treatments are 45,000. Per treatment. I had 16 total and 36 radiation treatments. Plus reconstuction surgery . So far the bill is over 8 million dollars at least. My point is this people arent numbers they are human beings and they need to start being treated like people so start doing your part.

What kills me the most is I give lectures here in Maine about Agent Orange and the effects it has on veterans and their families and I can't get one no not one of the veterans organizations like the VFW, AMvets, Legio or DAV to have me come in and present my lecture to there members. And I do this for FREE. What is wrong with everyone this has been and is still killing us today as well as our children and grand children!

This has been my experience as well, Joseph. 35 Years of Speaking, Legislation, & Community Education on A.O. and the problems we face daily with Re Exposure to 2,4-D, Round Up, GMO's, etc...Americans Do Not want to know. They are unwilling to believe that the Gov't. would allow this to happen to Vets and Families. Or to American Citizens....The Sleepers Must Awaken!

What I've noticed in presenting the research I've done on A.O. is many people replying with "All is fair in war" type of attitude. I've had numerous people express that attitude in the Q&A session but also mention their concern that our Veterans are not taken care of. I've also noticed the attitude of "what is done is done" and "it happened a long time ago" I try to stress to them that though it originally happened years ago....it is STILL very prevalent and continues to victimize in the present!!

Joe you need to contact the VAOIG in Washington DC to file a complaint against your reps up there. First of all, never go to the regional office. They are in conspiracy with the Gov't and hope we will just die off. Fight for what you deserve. The number my friend and others reading this, and do copy it down and repost it over and over 1-800-488-8244. This number by passes are BS recordings. They will ask you what you complaint is. Tell them and don't them belittle you. I deal them...

I am fighting to make sure it don't take 30 years like AO.

The sad thing is the Women of Vietnam children get better benefits than the Men. Don't get me wrong there children need benefits also. The reason is they got together and made the government pay for there children. Because the men were treated so badly or have already past away (as my husband has) VA treats us horrible including distroying files and not answering IRIS complaints.

It's because there were so many fewer women there. It was a smaller risk pool for the govt. if they acknowledge all the descendants of makes, they won't have money for their private jets, limos and pay raises
