I can see where senator Webb is coming from. That is alot of money to be spent on veterans who were in Nam. BUT..... what about the guys that are falling over left and right because of AGENT ORANGE. Some of my best friends made it home, only to die fromthat crap, and what did our wonderful government do about it????? NOTHING...They must've died form something else...right. BA HUM-BUG, agent orange killed these guys. I President Johnson was smart, he would kept us out of the war in the first place, he could not what to get involved, and look what it cost America... I guess I could go on and on, BUT I'll stop here. I made my point. Joe Breci....joebreci@aol.com

Jim Webb is a disgrace unto himself. He is a political yes man who doesnt even care. He is a vet who uses his time in Vietnam to make people think he knows about the medical issues that our vets face. Its funny isnt it-He has the bes health care in the world and yet wants to decide what vet gets what. He is a poor example of any human being.

All us Nam vets must make the effort and contact our reps in Congress and give them hell on this AO issue. Not a dime to So Viet Nam for AO clean up until we get cleaned up. A 5 minute e-mail or phone call will help. Get our voices heard or we'll get delayed until we die. S/F

As i have said to get this passed it is going to take ALL of YOU to write your Congressmen and Senators or more belays and deaths!
If it was not to WEBB and his stop gap play WE all would have heard somthing months ago!
Jim WEDD said it's to much money to be paid out!
So in other words it's ok if we all die and that way no more Agent Orange claims?

So do the right thing and write and let your voice and letter be seen in Washington D.C

That's exactly what they're doing, waiting for us to die. I'd bet anything Webb didn't do Shit in Nam. If he had anyone there with him, they're probably already dead. I'd hate to depend on a bum like him to cover my back. I was a grunt who ate, slept, and lived in the jungles where they sprayed AO and I'm proud to have been a part of what I feel was some of the best. I'll bet Webb can't say as much.Get the bum out!!

You make me sick. My husband was the sole income and took care of me(his wife) as well as the three children we had together and since he passed away 2 years ago from heart disease associated with the spraying of agent orange the VA cut off all benefits he was recieving and doesn't give a shit about what will happen to the families. I, for one will never give up on trying to do what is right by our govenment. My husband of 33 years deserves more than (denied, denid, denied). Maybe they should take a closer look at all the widows out there and maybe put themselves in our place fore once.
