Deadly rainbow: Veterans suffer from Agent Orange exposure

We're thankful that the VA has assumed 100% responsibility for Dom's Multiple Myeloma.  Sadly, other vets are not so lucky.

“That’s how it works,” he said. “In other words, you don’t have to prove that it came from that exposure. It is presumed it came from that exposure, which, from a veteran’s standpoint, makes it easy to receive treatment.”

Massey said he is glad Congress made provisions that made it easier for Vietnam veterans to receive treatment for some of the side effects associated with Agent Orange exposure.
“ ... a lot of veterans had real problems getting the treatment that they needed, and they set out to make it easier for people who had sacrificed to receive treatment,” he said.
