There are many kinds of wounded warriors of all wars. Loss of limb, loss of sight, Post Tramatic Stress Disorder. What about the Vietnam veterans? A war most forgotten. These veterans are the forgotten. Nearly 3 million of them. Did they not put their life on the line to preserve our Freedom? Hundreds of thousands of these Vets suffer from diseases of that terrible war. Diseases caused by the hebicide agent orange sprayed as a defoliant in Vietnam. We call it AO. For many, it has taken as long as 30 plus years for the Dioxin in agent orange to show up that attacks the human body. Dioxin a deadly poison second only to radiation poisoning. Diseases such as, Cancer i.e. prostate, Sarcoma, Lymphoma, Meloma, just a few of the cancers. Also Pakinson\'s, Hodgkins,Diabetes2,Ischemic Heart, just a few more. What about second and third generation diseases in children born of Vietnam vets? Such as, Spina Bifida, Cleft Lip and Palate, Dysplasia, Hypospadias, Syndactyly, Poland Syndrome, just a few. Yes, these vets and children are also wounded warriors of a different kind. Our government knew the ramifications in authorizing the use of this deadly poison.

In 1991, the Congress passed the agent orange act to afford all Vietnam vets VA claim to disability, no matter if they were on land, at sea or in the air. In 2002, that administration took away VA claims for disability from those vets who did not have boots-on-ground. Thousands lost all their disability. Presently, there are 3 legislative Bills. House Bills, HR-812, HR-3612 and Senate Bill S.1629. These Bills if passed will restore what was taken away. These Bills are hung up in committees. The only way for these Bills to get action is by help of the American people. People need to write to their members of Congress and Senate to co-sponsor these Bills, have them sent to the floors of both Houses and favoribly passed. Without the passage of these Bills, we Vietnam vets are doomed. We are now dying at a rate of 400 to 500 a week. Why won\'t our government help us? By the year 2012, it is estimated that fewer then 20,000 will sill be alive out of an estimated 400,000 still living. WWII and Korean war vets out live Vietnam vets by as much as 20 years in retospect.

So, American people, will you help?
