Heroes Denied after Agent Orange
Agent Orange is a chemical sprayed on the jungles of Vietnam. It is something not only the people of Vietnam suffer through but so did our servicemen and women. It’s caused health issues that for some veterans are just popping up. Some say they're not getting the treatment for it.
There were plenty of controversial aspects to the war in Vietnam. Agent Orange was one of them. It was sprayed by US forces in the jungles, trees, and vegetation. The idea was to destroy the forest the enemy used for cover. But the health effects of it turned out to be devastating.
