Guam Agent Orange Bill For Veterans Contact Congressman;

Guam Agent Orange Bill For Veterans Contact Congressman;

Just saw yesterday that a bill has been introduced by a Florida congressmen to recognize veterans who may have had Agent Orange exposure in Guam. Parkinson's disease is one of the presumptive diseases to that exposure. If you served in Guam starting in 67 through mid 70's and have cancer, diabetes or any other 17 diseases that can be contributing to the exposure you will want to contact your congressman to support this bill.

I grew up next to a large electrical powerline in the 60's and 70's which was rumored to have been sprayed with agent orange during those years... played there often as a child as it was right in my back yard! makes me wonder if my PD is linked to this?
