Paul Lawrence, Undersecretary for VA Benefits, recently unleashed a blistering attack against the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act (HR 229), which would extend disability benefits to at least 70,000 Vietnam vets suffering from dioxin-related ailments.

Agent Orange, commonly used as a defoliant in the thick jungles of Vietnam, causes these ailments, and there is clear and convincing scientific evidence that these 70,000 veterans were also exposed to this chemical.

These soldiers were shipboard personnel who generally patrolled about 12 miles off the coastline, but precedent does suggest that this distance does not preclude Agent Orange exposure. Also, Congress does not differentiate between levels of exposure among land-based Vietnam vets, only whether they were exposed or not.

 As I awoke to a FaceTime request from my 4-year-old grandson on a Saturday morning, I couldn’t help but think back about his mother at roughly the same age.
She didn’t have a smartphone back then, but she’d just as eagerly call her grandparents with the push-button phone that hung on the wall in our kitchen. I’m sure she’d still remember those old push-button phones, but probably not the rotary phones that my generation used as children.
