A personal plea from fellow Vietnam Veteran Bill Butler

Vietnam Veterans of America has announced a Call In Day to support H.R.1769 and S.901 the Toxic Exposure Research Act of 2015 on March 3, 2016. Call 202-224-3121.
I am a Vietnam veteran.  I have had cancer twice caused by Agent Orange.
I have a daughter who has a number of medical problems that are common to the daughters of Vietnam veterans. Many of the daughters of Vietnam veterans have medical problems with their reproductive organs. She also suffers from chronic headaches, and neck pains. She has lost all of her hair twice. All of her medical problems are listed by The Children of Vietnam Veterans Health Alliance.
There is a bill in Congress, the Toxic Exposure Research Act of 2015 which will address the medical problems of the children of Vietnam veterans and the children of veterans of other conflicts who were exposed to toxic substances.
The House Committee on Veterans Affairs voted to send the Toxic Exposure Research Act to the full House for consideration on Thursday, February 25, 2016.
Vietnam Veterans of America is asking everyone to support the bill by calling their Congressmen and Senators on Thursday, March 3, 2016 to ask them to support the bill.
Please support the bill, and ask your friends and relatives to help.
Thank you,
Bill Butler
