Our colleagues at the Upper Pioneer Valley Veterans Services District have asked us to spread the word about an upcoming event:
AGENT ORANGE TOWN HALL MEETING FOR VIETNAM VETERANS
Do you have questions about Agent Orange? It has been over 55 years since its first use and Vietnam Veterans and their families are still learning about the issues and the diseases they may have because of exposure to Agent Orange in and around Vietnam.
This event will discuss issues and diseases caused by Agent Orange exposure, benefits you may be eligible for, and will include question and answer periods. Information on Agent Orange is constantly changing, even if you are already rated for a 100% service-connected disability, you should attend-you may be eligible for additional compensation. Family members are also welcome to attend this important event.
