I’m a disabled Vietnam veteran. I will soon join the approximately 390 Vietnam veterans dying each day.
I was exposed to Agent Orange, a chemical
used to defoliate the jungle so the enemy could be seen easier.
I was diagnosed with a type of Parkinson’s which will kill me within five years.
The Veterans department needs to save money in order to help veterans serving in our never- ending war to fight terrorism.
Vietnam veterans are dying faster because the VA has limited disability payments to those suffering from Agent Orange. Doctors are urging the VA to add additional diseases from Agent Orange.
The VA has promised to explore adding to the list but are refusing to make a decision.
Ask the director, David, J. Shulkin to put Vietnam Veterans needs in place of the budget.
We need your help. We’re dying.
