    •To improve the lives of Vietnamese with disabilities.
    •To contain and clean up dioxin at three priority ‘hot spots’.
    •To set up a modern dioxin testing laboratory in Vietnam.
    •To foster programs training the Vietnamese in the restoration and management of damaged landscapes.
    •To educate the U.S. public on the issue."

    Now heres my 2c worth and a novel idea. JUST SAY NO ! $ 300,000,000. WOW ! All taxpayer money. Excuse my ignorance but why don't they just chase their Communist Regime in Vietnam? Let them provide the 300Mil.
    Will somebody please inform these ill advised Vietnamese that they have to do more than coming and asking us to foot the bill when our own guys & gals are waiting years for what they have earned by Law.

  2. Thanks for posting! Great campaign. I think that it's important to help both U.S. Veterans and the Vietnamese. Also, while that 300 million number might initially seem large, it is because in total less than 10% of the disabled people in Vietnam receive assistance and the toxin continues to poison the land. Also, it is (rightfully) a fraction of what is spent on U.S. Veterans affected by Agent Orange.
