Vietnam Veterans of America will hold a Town Hallmeeting to address the birth defects, diseases, and learning disabilities affecting the children andgrandchildren of Vietnam veterans. The forum will be held on Sunday, March 17, 2013, at 2:00 pm, atthe Fayetteville Memorial Building.
“We cannot be silent about the effects of our battlefield exposures on our children in the face of 
overwhelming evidence connecting many diseases and birth defects to exposure to Agent Orange in
Vietnam,” said Bill McDonald
, Agent Orange Chair for the West Virginia State Council of VietnamVeterans of America.
“We encourage all veterans with children and/or grandchildren suffering from ill
nesses, learningdisabilities, or physical disabilities to come share their stories. We will explore issues surroundingAgent Orange exposure, including scientific information, health effects, and methods for educating the public and elected representatives about the issues of Vietnam veterans, their children, and their 
families,” said McDonald
.
The goal of the town hall meeting is to bring attention to the hidden cost of our service and to encourage thegovernment to create and maintain a registry of these birth defects as well as assist our doctors in finding waysto diagnose and treat these birth defects.
Veterans of all wars are subjected to many contaminates and mostwere not aware of what was being used or what effects most would have on their health. SaidMcDonald
, “Our children are innocent victims of our war and need the help of our government to copewith these problems. We worry, who will be there to take care of them when we are gone?”
 
In keeping with VVA’s founding principle, “Never again will
one generation of veterans abandon
another,” Vietnam veterans th
roughout the state of West Virginia continue to fight for the welfare of 
our nation’s veterans from all wars.
