Sorry about your brother. Sadly, alot of our military men and women don't come back the same person they were when they went in. That happened to my grandfather also. He was missing for 40 years. Alot of veterans go missing, become alcoholics, unable to talk about what they saw, etc. It's a true tragedy.

My Dad served 21 years in the Army. He has Agent Orange from his Vietnam tour. WE need to help all the Vets that served to protect our country. It's our turn to protect them.

Chemical Agents used in Vietnam, also known as Agent Orange, has played havoc on many veterans and their offspring yet it took our congress many years before finally conceding this and identifying 'Presumptives' that are directly related to these chemicals.

Chemical Agents used in Vietnam, also known as Agent Orange, has played havoc on many veterans and their offspring yet it took our congress many years before finally conceding this and identifying 'Presumptives' that are directly related to these chemicals.

John Bury, a Naval Vietnam Vet, has had 4 cancers because of this chemical usage during the Vietnam War and he is still here, alive, and putting up the good fight and leading the way for the Congress and the Senate to pass a bill which will include those Blue Water Navy Vets in the previous bill that offered relief for the boots on the ground and Brown Water Navy Vets.

John Bury's Video- http://www.confusedveterans.com/cms/images/JohnBuryAgentOrange.mp4 - and short summary of his battles and his fight to increase awareness can be watchedat the link above. It is not very long but I think you will go away with a better understanding of what the Blue Water Navy Vets are up against in seeking relief for having the same medical problems that the others, boots on ground and brown water navy, has been afforded.

Why is this important to me; a Gulf War Veteran? It may be years, just as in the Vietnam Nehmer Case, that the Congress, the DoD, and the Veteran Affairs ever recognizes and provides further studies of the cancer rates and other chronic conditions that the Gulf War Veteran suffers from as opposed to their counterparts that did not take part in the conflict and, subsequently, were not exposed to the chemical hazards on the battlefield, the effects of the burn pits, and the effects of the oil well fires, and demolition of chemical weapons containing saran nerve gas and all within the vicinity and upwind from selected units such as mine.

Keep that in mind as you enjoy your Veterans Day Weekend and a Big Thank You to all our Vet's.

Our organization has been working with the families of Vietnam veterans since 1986. What these families need most is medical diagnosis and treatment for their children.
