Agent Orange Information
III (3) Corps was the most heavily contaminated with Agent Orange in all of RVN. The adverse effects still linger in the country
and in all of us that were there. The VA recognizes this and will provide screening and health care to all Vietnam vets.
Most prominent ailments are prostate cancer, non Hodgkin's lymphoma, diabetes, and the list goes on. I was diagnosed
with prostate cancer 5 years ago ( most easily cured when caught in early stage and most deadly if ignored).
Every one on
this list should go to nearest VA hospital with a dd214 and request the Agent Orange screening.
I found the VA to
be excellent and very much on top of the program. A simple blood test along with a complete physical will be done
immediately without charge. If anyone has any questions regarding this matter please feel free to contact me
via email or phone my cell (sent by email upon request). I had surgery done at Walter Reed and VA does follow up every 3 months.
I also receive
disability pay in addition to my retirement. Any questions, do NOT hesitate to contact me.
I did my screening a year ago and encourage everyone to get it done, why, read the items below, Dave Green.
