ARE YOU PROVIDING MEDICAL CARE TO A CHILD

OR GRANDCHILD OF A VIETNAM VETERAN?
 An Estimated 18 Million Gallons of Herbicide (containing dioxin) 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 Dioxin research for children
and grandchildren of Vietnam Veterans who have debilitating birth defects and illnesses.

WHAT YOUR PATIENT WANTS YOU TO KNOW…
 One of their parents or grandparents served in Vietnam
 Their parent/grandparent’s health has been affected by Agent Orange/Dioxin
 Your patient suffers with unexplained illnesses or birth defects
 Your patient’s siblings and/or children are suffering with unexplained
illnesses or birth defects
 There are medical professionals who are aware of the epidemic
 Would like you to note in their chart that they are a child or grandchild of a
Vietnam Veteran
Children/Grandchildren of Vietnam Veterans report many serious
unexplained illnesses at a significantly younger than average age: like;
Neoplasms, Endocrine, Nutritional and Metabolic Diseases, and immunity disorders, Diseases of the blood and blood-
forming organs, Mental disorders, Diseases of the nervous system, Diseases of the sense organs, Diseases of the circulatory
system, Diseases of the respiratory system, Diseases of the digestive system, Diseases of the genitourinary system,
Complications of pregnancy, childbirth, and the puerperium, Diseases of the skin and subcutaneous tissue, Diseases of the
musculoskeletal system and connective tissue, and Congenital anomalies
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).
 COVVHA is working closely with others in hopes of forcing the Veterans Administration to recognize the
birth defects and illnesses in the offspring of Male Vietnam Vets and their families.
