Veteran Descendants Health Survey Vietnam War

we are currently working on a new health survey for Veteran Descendants
IMPORTANT LINKS FOR CHILDREN OF VETERANS EXPOSED TO AGENT ORANGE
OUR BELIEF
Legacy of Our Veterans' Military Exposures (LOVME) formerly known as Agent Orange Legacy does not claim that these illnesses are or are not caused by our member(s) veteran parent(s) exposure to Agent Orange. 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, there is enough evidence to prove that veterans exposed to Agent Orange are experiencing a health crisis and so are their children as well as subsequent generations. Thus requiring the attention of our elected officials, our government and the medical community.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • THIS LIST INCLUDES

    This list also includes symptoms reported which remain un-diagnosed. Many of the children suffer from symptoms which are unexplained or remain untreated.
  • LAST UPDATED

    We are still working on the list. More information will be added as it becomes available. Updated June 30, 2012.
