U.S. Government Officials Hold Hearing on Vietnam Veterans' Exposure to Agent Orange Ca. 1982Unknown - 1982
During the 1980s, many veterans of the Vietnam War began demanding that the government offer increased health care and other services to those who were exposed to Agent Orange during the war. Agent Orange was a toxic chemical compound that included materials known to cause cancer, and it was sprayed by U.S. forces over jungles in Vietnam in an attempt to kill foliage that provided cover to North Vietnamese troops. The Veterans Administration at the time argued that more research was needed to determine the exact effects of exposure to the chemical.
