Forgotten Veterans


Dear Barack Obama

I ask the VA to help me and thousands of other veterans who were stationed on bases in Thailand that are suffering from many of the same illnesses that were caused by Agent Orange and other herbicides that were used on base to allow us to have medical treatment and VA disability benefits just like other veterans that were "just down the road" inside Viet Nam during the Viet Nam conflict.

The VA just turned away from us. We are the forgotten veterans of a war no one wanted. We are all supposed to quietly die off so it can be swept under the rug of history. Congress could and should be forced to give us the same benefits since we served and supported the conflict and were also awarded the Viet Nam service metal.

The military has admitted it used herbicides on some military bases in Thailand and are paying some Air Police veterans. I lived, slept, and breathed the same chemicals used on fence line because my barracks was within 100 feet of the fence. The same fence that the Air Police patrolled and are getting compensation for! The ultimate disgrace was the fact they didn't even list the veterans who died in combat in Thailand on the Viet Nam National Memorial !!!

I don't expect to get a response from this, as I quietly die of throat and lung cancer. I feel like this is a result of Agent Orange exposure during my military service. And one of my civilian cancer doctors wrote a letter to support my claim. Of course this letter was buried in the vast file system. If Congress really wanted to overhaul the VA system, they need to start with the oldest veterans' problems.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to vent my frustration with the "system".
