Hopefully, this is helpful.  Please share this information with persons in need and/or with other agencies that provide services to Veterans.

NEW AGENT ORANGE RELATED DISEASES

Bladder cancer, Hypothyroidism, and Parkinsonism has been added to the Department of Veterans Affairs' list of conditions linked to Agent Orange herbicide exposure in Vietnam.

 

This corrects a long-lingering injustice, allowing our afflicted Vietnam veterans to
receive the care and benefits they have earned by their service in our long-ago, unpopular war.
