C-123 Veterans Seek Association of Public Health Assistance

Before heading back from LtCol Paul Bailey's memorial services, I obtained press credentials and attended the Boston based-meeting of the American Public Health Association.

I missed Dr. Richard Clapp's presentation on Vietnam's problems with Agent Orange which was presented yesterday, but benefited from many experts who have weighed in to support our arguments with the Department of Veterans Affairs which opposes all C-123 veterans' claims. VA utilizes their unique redefinition of "exposed" to insure none of the Agent Orange-exposed veterans will receive medical care for their Agent Orange-associated illnesses.

In particular, I was helped at the Arizona State University booth, the National Cancer Institute booth and most especially, at the CDC booth where I was able to express my appreciation for the opinions of Rear Admiral (USPHS) Robin Ikeda.
