Reported Illnesses

GATHERING HEALTH INFORMATION
LOVME is gathering health information about our members to help us better understand the issues affecting them. It is not known if these illnesses are caused by the veteran parent(s) exposure to Agent Orange or other Military Exposures. The only birth defect recognized in the children of male Vietnam veterans is spina bifida. VA also recognizes a number of birth defects in the children of women Vietnam veterans. Currently the VA does not recognize any birth defects in the children of Gulf war veterans.

  • THE TASK BEFORE US

    Our task is to report the facts. To date we have found that a very large percentage of our members suffer from multiple illnesses. This is the list of birth defects, illnesses, diseases, mental health issues etc. reported by our members as of June 2010
  • OUR BELIEF

    LOVME does not claim that these illnesses are or are not caused by our member(s) veteran parent(s) Military Exposure. We do, however, believe that a great many of the reported birth defects, autoimmune and rare diseases, mental health illness and learning disabilities are related to the veteran parent(s)exposure to Agent Orange and other toxic substances. We also believe that no matter the cause that there is enough evidence to prove that the children of Vietnam veterans exposed to Agent Orange are experiencing a health crisis and so are their children. Thus requiring the attention of our elected officials and our government.
  • WHAT YOU CAN DO

    Please make an effort and take the time to document how Agent Orange has effected your life. It is imperative that we create Congressional Testimony to present to our elected officials so we can begin to address this crisis among our children and grandchildren. If you have questions about how you can get started please email us at aolegacy@gmail.com.
