Book Description

 From 1962 to 1971 the United States Air Force sprayed more than 12 million gallons of Agent Orange over Vietnam in order to defoliate the jungle. Agent Orange is a herbicide that contains dioxin, a highly toxic compound. The effect of Agent Orange, and other herbicides, on human health and on Vietnam veterans remains a source of great controversy. Deadly illnesses associated to Agent Orange was not acknowledged by the Pentagon until years after Vietnam veterans were exposed to the dangerous herbicide. Laboratory studies performed in 1969 found that birth defects was linked to Agent Orange exposure, however the use of the herbicide was not discontinued until two years later, exposing 2.4 million Vietnam veterans to it. 58,226 American soldiers died in the war, or are missing in action. This book is dedicated to all the other casualties of the Vietnam War. The children who were born to veterans that were exposed to Agent Orange. They will suffer all their lives because if it. The federal government has abandoned them. Most have no insurance to cover their aliments. Most can not get a decent job equal to a normal person. They have been forgotten and the federal government has tossed them over to the side. The main person in this book, has a son who is one of these victims. This book will give the reader new insight into the many myths of Agent Orange and the aftermath of dealing with the effects. The lack of help for the victims and the loss of vital health records, needed to file a VA claim. This book is about A young man being drafted into the United States Marine Corps, his tour of duty in Vietnam, him dealing with a son with multiple birth defects and the refusal by the government to help. I hope this book will shed some light on the many families that suffer from children with birth defects.
