This is a one-day conference will be held to share information about how Agent Orange (Dioxin) and other toxic chemicals used forty years ago in Vietnam and other places is affecting the health of not only the veterans of the Vietnam War, other Eras and current Active Duty Military and most importantly… their children and grandchildren… and likely generations to come.
The conference will focus not only on the familiar Vietnam link, but also the less-familiar linkage to usage in other campaigns in other wars, and to the handling of the chemicals within the U.S., including here in Florida. The issues are closer to home than we might think.
The Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1088, representing military of all eras and the communities in Nassau and Camden Counties, is offering an unprecedented opportunity to learn more about the effects of Non-degradable Agent Orange/Dioxin and other Toxic Chemicals for our veterans, their children and grandchildren and those yet to come, at a free “National Town Hall Meeting”.
There will be four ‘national experts’ on Agent Orange and other substances, VA Enrollment and Medical Staff Representatives, Veterans Services Officer, Local Medical Team,’ live mike’ with Question/Answer Opportunities and free Self Help Guides for All attending.
