As veterans of the Vietnam War age into their 60s and 70s health problems may appear linked to their exposure to the widely used chemical Agent Orange.
But activists say many of the veterans, and their spouses, are not aware of the benefits they’re entitled to.
A free forum open to all veterans to discuss Agent Orange is scheduled this Saturday in Greenfield, Massachusetts.
WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Tim Niejadlik , director of the Upper Pioneer Valley Veterans’ Services District.
Information about this Saturday’s free forum on Agent Orange is available at the website: www.greenfield-ma.gov or by calling 413-772-1571.
