You must watch this video. It is an eye-opener. The effects of Agent Orange are inter-generational - up to three generations involved in many cases. This is the NZ story, but the effects of Agent Orange have effected Australians, Americans and of course Vietnamese too. I lost a brother and brother in law who served in Vietnam with the NZ Army, the latter was a rifleman who fought in the jungle there.
