LIVING WITH AGENT ORANGE: Vietnam veteran to receive high school diploma

Agro has diabetes. His exposure to Agent Orange while serving in Vietnam makes him eligible for disability payments. The Veterans Administration office sent him to school for training to become an armed guard. But most places want a diploma, he said. 

Someone at the Veterans Administration’s office told him high school diplomas are available to veterans who served in Vietnam. The service had been available to World War II and Korean War era veterans. In November, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy extended the benefit Vietnam vets.
