had brother who was a vietnam vet, died of cancer.was not the same man whenhe came back.
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.
Very well said Jolayne. Thank you for your support
On behalf of Vietnam Combat Veterans, Ltd.; VET-NET, I wholeheartedly support this effort and encourage the support of all VET-NET Members, Associates & Affiliates -- as well as the support of ALL Americans, Vietnamese, Laotians, Cambodians and Other Nationals whose children and whose children's children are at risk from the dangers of Dioxin....the most persistent and dangerous component of Agent Orange.
I am a Vietnam Veteran and I am sick from Agent Orange.
because I'm a veteran.
My niece's daddy was a brave soldier who served in the Vietnam War. He died of Agent Orange. Those who serve our country in any way, fashion, or form are the most worthy of causes.
It is important to me because of the medical case of my daugher and my son's son. This may carry on far beyond just the next generation. This should also be added to the White House Petition Board if it hasn't already (https://petitions.whitehouse.gov).
I was a nurse in Vietnam. In 1973 my daughter was born with Downs Syndrome. It is not recognized as caused by agent orange. Recently I saw a article on the dramatic increase of Downs Syndrome in Vietnam after the war in the areas around Bien Hoa Near where I was stationed for the first half of my tour.
My husband is a VietNamvet, all 3 of our girls have medical conditions and concerns because of his exposure.
This is important to me because of the medical problems experienced by my son.
I'm a Vietnam Veteran, I have seen many Vets suffering from the affects of Agent Orange. I have also seen the affects it has had on Vietnamese children and their parents. It is something that has not had enough attention.
