America, why the double standard in Panama?
Dear Congress Members why is their a double standard when it comes to agent orange use in Panama?
The VA admitted agent orange exposure in Panama in 1998 and 1999 for some vets but now the VA claims the government does not have any record of agent orange use or herbicides in Panama for the rest of us veterans who served in Panama.
I was honorably discharged in 1975 from the army. Now that I have failed kidneys, diabetes, and neuropathy and am terminally ill, the VA has denied my benefits claim. Please wake up. We veterans earned our benefits. It makes absolutely no logic or sense what the VA is saying that the government has no record of agent orange use in Panama than how the VA admit to agent orange use in Panama in 1999 and awarded Mrs. Pamela Jones benefits due to agent orange exposure. NO matter what evidence I provide it is never good enough for the VA. I have provided plenty of supporting evidence but the VA is simply being unreasonable and has no viable reason to deny my claim but is doing so in spite.
Congress please stop the double standard by the VA and order the VA to stop harassing the vets. Let us live in dignity and raise our families in dignity too.
