Veterans and descendents live with effects of chemical warfare

Forty years after American military personnel were exposed to Agent Orange during the Vietnam War, veterans and their offspring are still experiencing medical conditions that studies have increasingly linked to the toxic herbicide.

A town hall meeting organized by the local chapter of Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) and Disabled American Veterans (DAV) will inform local veterans and their families of the latest research and efforts to secure medical benefits for families who have suffered due to exposure to toxins during military service. The meeting, called “The Faces of Agent Orange,” will be held in Bellingham on September 19.
