ARE YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW A CHILD OR

GRANDCHILD OF A VIETNAM VETERAN?
 22 Million Gallons of Herbicide were sprayed in Vietnam during the Vietnam War.
 Many Vietnam Veterans are passing away prematurely or are seriously ill due to their
service connected, herbicide exposure during the war.
 Vietnam Veterans have voiced their concerns about their offspring having many types
of birth defects and serious illnesses that have no prior family history.
 Vietnam Veterans have reported their wives and partners have had multiple
miscarriages.
 The U.S. Government refuses to fund the needed research for children and grandchildren of Vietnam Veterans who have
debilitating birth defects and illnesses.

Current U.S. Government Stance
 Currently, the U.S. Government acknowledges 18+ Birth Defects in the Children of FEMALE Vietnam Veterans (Only
6-8 thousand served). They are quick to state these birth defects were caused by the women’s service in Vietnam
and not Herbicide. What caused the birth defects?
 Currently, the U.S. Government acknowledges only one birth defect in the Children of MALE Vietnam Veterans (2.8
MILLION men served). They acknowledge Spina Bifida (NOT OCCULTA).
