“Veterans Serving Veterans”

Agent Orange

These sites deal with Agent Orange related health issues our Veterans are having and how to get answers that will assist them and their families. There have been over 250,000 deaths attributed to Agent Orange!

VA Presumptive Diseases Attributed to Agent Orange - This site shows a list of diseases that the VA presumes that are caused by the effects from the use of Agent Orange and other herbicides in the Vietnam War. These are only given to those Veterans who served on the ground in Vietnam. Those Veterans who served in theater on ships or at all the Thailand air bases are not covered by the VA even though our Government knows that all bases in Thailand were sprayed with the same herbicides they used in Vietnam.

EVERY RED BLOODED AMERICAN needs to help fight for these Veterans who are dying every day and having to suffer without any VA support for them or their families!! In Dec 2017 the US Senate Bill S2105 was introduced and in Jan 2018 the House Bill HR4843 was introduced. These bills are basicly asking our government to give the same coverage the VA gives our Vietnam on the ground Veterans to our Thailand Air Base Veterans.

WE ALL NEED TO WRITE LETTERS TO OUR US SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES asking them to sponsor and support these bills NOW before all our Vietnam War Veterans die and suffer alone!! Here is how you can help....

The letters to each is already written here so you only need to print, sign and send them. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
