Agent Orange Stories Continue to Draw Concern from the Public

Baby Feet

At the annual Nebraska Vietnam Veterans Reunion in Omaha, NE over 100 veterans and their family and friends learned about the effects of Agent Orange through a ‘Faces of Agent Orange’ session.

Agent Orange chairman for Vietnam Veterans of America, Maynard Kaderlik, gave facts and lead personal anecdotes on the possible side effects from the dioxin-laden chemical on the health of the descendants of Vietnam veterans.

Attendees have family members with ailments such as a cleft palate, heart problems, and problems with female sex organs, to name a few.

Kaderlik urged the attendees to file a claim with Veterans Affairs in the event a familial link is discovered, saying it would be easier to receive back payments.

The VVA continues to lobby Congress to fund the study of the next-generation effects of Agent Orange.
