        That is a lot of claims that have been files. do you have any idea how many have been denied and how many have been aproved. It is amazing how so many veterans can complain about this disease and no one will listen. I think a letter to the president is in order and then the guy in charge of the VA. Maybe something will get done then. I am still going to fight for my husband.

              I am sorry about your brother. This is a problem that just keeps getting worse for Vietnam vets. They are making all kinds of efforts to help the veterans that have come back from iraq and afganistan but our vietnam vets i think they are lost. They were treated so badly when they came home by society and the VA that most of them don't trust the VA for help, especially the ones that have PTSD. Unfortuanately the Vietn...

                Larry if you think that V.N. veterans do not talk about their health and the way A O affected them you don't know them. They do but no one really wants to listen, like you they believe that the health problems they recieved from being in VN are all a joke. Well i was married to a VN vet and my brother is a vietnam vet and both suffered from severe PTSD and my husband got colon cancer. It is real and it was caused by ...

                  I thank you for this I have vowed that I will fight until the day i die. I am going to keep searching to find this information. I will submit it to my vet rep and have it sent in.

I am willing to stay on the computer for everyday to make thi...

                      Tell everyone a little bit about yourself i have lost my husband to colon cancer he was a vietnam vet and was denied disability for it he was cancer free for 8 years and it returned to his lungs because the hospital said that its was mets from his colon they denied him compensation for lung cancer. I work at a va hospital and have seen many vietnam vets diagnosed with colon cancer and be told that they can't get compensation for it. i am appealling even though my husband is gone.
