Are You a Vietnam Veteran? Help Us Investigate the Impact of Agent Orange

agent orangeby Charles Ornstein

ProPublica and The Virginian-Pilot are exploring the ways children of Vietnam veterans may be affected by a parent’s exposure to Agent Orange.

The Department of Veterans Affairs acknowledges that direct exposure to Agent Orange and other defoliants may lead to negative health consequences for veterans. Some veterans’ service organizations, including the Vietnam Veterans of America, have expressed concern that exposure has also led to health issues in the children of veterans.

Are you a veteran of the Vietnam War era? We’re interested in talking to all veterans who served in Vietnam and the wider Western Pacific area during that time, including those stationed in Korea. You can help us learn more about this issue by completing the short survey below, which includes questions about your service, family and health. Please answer as completely as you can. Your personal information will not be shared with others without your permission, but reporters plan to aggregate statistical information and publish an overview about the results of the survey, without identifying specific individuals.

    The province of Ontario in Canada used agent Orange as a defoliante and the ministries of the environment and/or health may have useful information about its effect on civilians in Ontario. A man who would know, if he is still there is John Steele, at the Ministry of the Environment.
