My late husband was a Vietnam Vet. He passed away five years ago from prostate cancer that the VA determined was caused by exposure to Agent Orange. Our first child was stillborn. Our surviving son has mental health issues. I always wonder if both were also caused by AO.

I am the daughter of a Vietnam vet. My dad was there and exposed to agent orange. I was born with a birth defect. I'm told it's called Poland's syndrome. I also have Graves thyroid disease, celiac disease, hypoglycemic, my joints ache daily. I'm 43. My younger brother also is dealing with issues and was born with a defect.

I hope this petition works for you, Tracey ! I recently found out that my grandson (11 years old) also has Poland's disease. Can you offer me any thoughts on the difficulties you have lived through so I may have some insight on this as Trevor grows?

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

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.
