Agent Orange Birth Defect Children

To be delivered to Eric Shinseki, Secretary Dept of Veteran Affairs, Chairman House Veterans Affairs Committee, Chairman Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

We ask that you urge VA Secretary Eric Shinseki to obey Public Law 110-387 and provide "comprehensive health care" to the several hundred children of Vietnam vets having birth defects connected to their parents exposure to A/O in Vietnam.
There are currently 1,002 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

In 2008 Congress has passed legislation (PUBLIC LAW 110-387 SECTION 408) to provide comprehensive health care for the birth defect A/O children of Vietnam combat vets exposed to Agent Orange.. Five Years LATER, the VA has STILL NOT provided the care legislated by Congress in 2008. They stall and verbally tap dance for year after year.

My mission with this petition is to EMBARRASS the VA bureaucrats into simply obeying federal law PL 110 387 SECTION 408.

I will do so, or bust a gut. All help appreciated. Ron Nesler 812 270 0699
