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.

My husband was literally blown up in half in Vietnam, he was pronounced dead and one of God's miracles was brought back to life. He was in the hospital for 6 months and another 6 months rehab and the mentally rehab after that surfaced and our family had to deal with that result.

My husband was literally blown up in half in Vietnam, he was pronounced dead and one of God's miracles was brought back to life. He was in the hospital for 6 months and another 6 months rehab and the mentally rehab after that surfaced and our family had to deal with that result. When my husband passed was not until twenty something years later, he was collecting his mere pension from the Army and working for the Post Office. When he passed away, his pension was suppose to go to his daughter, the Army cut it off. Don't get me wrong, I love our Country but there are times when I ask, "when do our guys and their families get the rights and respect they deserve?"

We need to create a long term sustainable plan for bringing veterans home with support systems that are meaningful, and long term. We need to address the VietnA vets, the Korean vets who suffered, and the Iraq and Afghanistan vets coming home now. We need to recognize the kind of "hurt locker" they lived in, and still do when they come home. We need to sensitize our children to the bravery these men and women showed, and how much they gave up for their countries, despite the absolute...

We need to create a long term sustainable plan for bringing veterans home with support systems that are meaningful, and long term. We need to address the VietnA vets, the Korean vets who suffered, and the Iraq and Afghanistan vets coming home now. We need to recognize the kind of "hurt locker" they lived in, and still do when they come home. We need to sensitize our children to the bravery these men and women showed, and how much they gave up for their countries, despite the absolute inanity of th wars themselves. They need physical and psychological treatment before they even get home. It has to be sensitive and personalized doe each veteran, some of whom have lost fingers, toes, Rms, legs, eyes, ears, sightrewewe
