(SALEM, Ore.) - (Editor's note: This article has information that is deemed inaccurate by The Veterans Association of Sailors of the Vietnam War, a group we have a great deal of respect for. Please read: Rebuttal to Salem-News Over Agent Orange Story - Bill Miltenberger for Salem-News.com)
A petition that you can sign here, will help ensure that the U.S. government is taking important steps to be accountable and reveal all of the locations where Agent Orange was used in places outside of the conflict zone of the Vietnam War.
For those who are not familiar, this chemical was developed and marketed to the government by Monsanto and Dow and it was sprayed over the jungles of Vietnam to reduce the foliage so that American planes could more easily attack enemies that otherwise were obscured by the natural landscape.
The chemicals affected both the Americans who served in the affected areas, and without question the Vietnamese, who continue to experience terrible birth defects and other handicaps in children as a result of this practice.
The results have been devastating.
Agent Orange as it turns out, leads to many types of cancer- accompanied by denials of proper diagnoses and origin of illnesses by the Veterans Administration, and there are the hereditary aspects of this contamination, they are multi-generational we now know.
We petition the Obama administration:Investigation for Full Disclosure of Where and When Agent Orange Herbicides were used Outside of Vietnam to Include Guam
