Knoxville Agent Orange Town Hall Meeting
Tennessee's first Agent Orange Town Hall Meeting in Knoxville last evening was an overwhelming success. Chapter 1078 is to be commended and thanked, highly, for their outstanding enthusiasm, involvement and execution. For their first event since receiving their VVA Charter in June, I can't say enough for their commitment in the service and support of our area Brothers and their families at this event.
Town hall meeting about Agent Orange discusses genetic legacy of chemical
About 188 people attended a town hall meeting in Fayetteville about Agent Orange and how it effects not only veterans, but their children and grandchildren.
"Agent orange is probably one of the most toxic chemicals that exists," explained Mokie Porter of the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA). "Its health impact on the veterans and their families is tremendous."
Porter said VVA is hosting town hall meetings across the country to spread this message. "We're trying to do this in an effort to get a grassroots movement to get our government to take action and provide assistance, medical care, research and treatment for these children - some of whom are now adults - and their children and their children's children."
