My Husband GAVE HIS LIFE "Agent Orange" And I Was TOLD BY Veterans Affairs That The 72 Billion Dollars From That Company Had ALL BEEN SPENT 2 Weeks PRIOR To Danny's Diagnosis (FACT).

Shameful is not the word for it. A disgrace. The government has turned their backs on all Veterans from the Vietnam war and up! The whole Agent Orange thing they tried to sweep under the rug, like it never happened. What a wonderful government we have! (NOT)

so what happened to the recommendation of General Simmler?

Nicholas ... that would a question best answered by Mr. Cannon. However, my understanding is that the original letter has not been seen for some time. General Simler gave Mr. Cannon a signed copy which remains in his possession today.

Nicholas, we have a copy of the Nomination, but the carbon copy that Will received from General Simler after the incident is somewhere in the Pentagon. Will's father's Congressman sent the carbon copy to the Pentagon in the '80s demanding explanation, but the response basically discarded the matter and we aren't really sure what they did with the carbon copy.

I am signing as a Brother and Vietnam Veteran. What he did was not only heroic but without self-regard to his on life. But, it does not surprise me the citation was lost. Many things from that era went that way and are still being lost to this day. Thought and Light to All.
