Veterans Affairs holds Agent Orange town hall meeting in Wilmington

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– Veterans from all over the United States came to Wilmington to fight for a cause at the Agent Orange town hall meeting.

Agent Orange is a dioxin that many soldiers were exposed to during war. Now, they are fighting for diagnosis and treatment for their children and grandchildren that could be affected.

One woman is still very concerned after losing her son and then her husband to what she thinks was caused by Agent Orange.

“Iā€™m still worried,ā€ Lynn Olsen said. ā€œI have grandchildren. I have two sons that I love desperately. I don’t even want to think about what could possibly happen to them.ā€

Veterans Affairs wants anyone that has a claim to go to a local office and report it. They are trying to get a bill passed in Washington that will establish a national center for the treatment and diagnosis of conditions caused by exposure to these toxins.
