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.

My husband is a VietNam Vet, and Served from 1965 to 1969 with the 1ST Marine Air Wing, so he was all over where agent orange was.Our daughter, at 26 was diagnosed with COPD, and had a bout of pluerisy.The Dr.s were shocked, we have a no-smoking house and cars and she was never a drug user.She has no insurance and also suffers from ptsd and anxiety.We need to help these kids, our kids.

My son lived 18 hours and we had to take him off life suports as after beint told that he may not be able to hear, see, and had 10 blood transw fusion the back left side of his brain blew out and was now dead. He was on life supports. What more could we do but to end his pain than 12 years latter after holding alot of guilt and blame we found out about Agent Orange and what it could be. Patrick would have been 18 in Aug. May God bless him and all the other children as well as the familes...
