Agent Orange Vietnam Veterans: Injured Vet Walking For Awareness

Cordova became disabled as a result of his exposure to Agent Orange while serving in Vietnam, but he doesn’t let it slow him down.

“I don’t want the younger generation to go through some of the stuff that we’ve gone through as far as when I came back from Vietnam.
There was no program in place, no help available,” Cordova said. “Now, the V.A. has made a lot of progress, but they’re still behind.”
Cordova says he wants to make all veterans, young and old, aware of the programs and assistance available to them through the V.A. He also wants to encourage them not to give up on that help, even if the V.A. processes become lengthy or confusing.

Information on Cordova's work is available on his website, http://thebencordovafoundation.org/
