Agent Orange And All I See Is Red

Question

:rolleyes: I received my Compensation package yesterday, and have been hoping I would be excited!:angry: But I'm just dam mad! For ALL the Vietnam Veterans that had died and not knowing about Agent Orange. It just want the government to tell all the veteran's that don't know. There's got to be away we can force VA to contact as many as they can. AS they say at (VA) in their letter to me WHAT WE DECIDED:

It took about 12 months to complete.

Prostate Cancer 100%

Cancer of the Lymph nodes 100%

DMII 20%

PN left leg 20%

PN right leg 20%

IHD 10%

Once you send in your first claim, be careful not to make another claim before you complete the first or it will sloooow down first claim.

The money is going to help fight the cancer, because the cancer is coming back and the medicine is not working. Here we go back to MD Anderson.

I talked to an older RVN vet today at the VAMC. He did not know his heart attack could be SC'ed. His mouth dropped open when I told him. His doctor never told him and probably does not know. Everytime I go out there I find some RVN vet who is ignorant of AO. One guy had lung cancer and did not know. He is dying and does not know it can be connected to AO.

They should send a letter to all vets, " This is what we sent you into, This is is what we did not tell you, This is what we HAVE done to you" Now that we have told you......Sue me !

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
