Protecting our veterans' children

Official Logo for Legacy of our Veterans’ Military Exposures (LOVME)

The Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1097 will hold an Agent Orange town hall meeting on the generational effects of this chemical at 6 p.m. March 24 at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Ag Center on George Boulevard.

This chemical was used in 11 locations in Florida, including the Avon Park Bombing Range.

“The forum will address how Agent Orange has affected veterans and their families with birth defects, diseases and learning disabilities affecting children and grandchildren,” the group said in a news release.

Issues surrounding the chemical will be explored, including scientific information, health effects and methods for educating the public.

Seating is limited. To RSVP, call Marvin Desselle at 214-0601.

    I represent a veteran who was stationed at Avon Park in the early 70s. He has some serious health issues, including prostate cancer. Do you have information or know of VA decisions association herbicides at Avon Park that would be helpful to his claim?
