You don’t and neither do we, however. We believe that your veteran parent(s) exposure to Agent Orange caused your birth defect and/or illness. There are many organizations and groups working to prove it, scientifically.
The only birth defect linked to Agent Orange exposure in the children of male Vietnam veterans and recognized by the VA is Spina Bifida (not occulta).
Many more birth defects have been recognized in the children of women Vietnam veterans.
Birth defects in the children of women Vietnam veterans have not been linked to exposure to Agent Orange.
One of the things you can do to help is register with Birth Defect Research for Children National Birth Defect Registry.
If you are the child of a Vietnam veteran and your child is ill register your child with the above registry.
Birth Defect Research for children is spearheading a to build a Children’s Center
to provide specific medical treatment to Vietnam Veterans’ children that are in dire need of specific medical treatment related to Agent Orange exposure.
