Why fill out the form? VVA's Veterans Agent Orange Initiative is a humanitarian, veteran-to-veteran effort to document Agent Orange exposure (particularly from hand and truck spraying of bases) and to define likely hot spots of dangerously high dioxin levels on former U.S. and ARVN bases in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.

    I served in the First Infantry Division in 66'-67' as a machine gunner, and in 67'-68' as a door gunner in a helicopter gunship. I have prostate cancer and diabetes, and suffer from the whole range of side effects from my cancer treatment.It has affected the quality of my retirement years considerably. I am still proud of my service to my country, but wish that Agent Orange had not been used in Vietnam.

  2. This is Sgt. Tore Bratvold's sons (Scott and Troy), we found a small pocket sized notebook with your name in it, and dad had the same problems with agent orange. He passed away on 2/21/13. He had a massive brain tumor removed less than a year prior, and also was diagnosed with diabetes. We believe you were in the same squad as my father. We would be very grateful to hear from you, sbratvold@excite.com or troy_bratvold@hotmail.com.
