I write to you today to express my concerns about treatment and compensation of veterans exposed to Agent Orange. As you may know, since the 1970s, veterans have suffered from high blood pressure and strokes to be the result of our exposure to Agent Orange. The Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine published in November 2016 the study (Herbicide Exposure, Vietnam Service, and Hypertension Risk in Army Chemical Corps Veterans) commissioned by President Barack Obama confirms that vets exposed to Agent Orange are more likely to have high blood pressure and strokes as compared to those who weren’t exposed. I write to urge you to use the Department of Veterans Affairs’ existing statutory authority to quickly make high blood pressure and strokes presumptive to being exposed to Agent Orange. Center For Disease Control estimates that 115 veterans die daily because of exposure to Agent Orange. Each day delayed is more Vets dead.
When the men and women of our Armed Forces volunteer to defend our country, we do so believing that our government will do everything possible to keep us safe and healthy. We deserve access to top quality benefits and services, especially when we have sacrificed our health for our nation. We have a responsibility to help these men and women live lives that are as active and productive as possible, which is why I hope you can commit to using your full authority to address this critical issue.
