IAM AN AGENT ORANGE "SILVER ROSE RECIPIENT

                                                        

 

                

  FROM VIETNAM IT EVENTUALLY LEAD TO MY

 FIGHT WITH AGENT ORANGE AND MY OWN HEALTH

 EFFECTS.  I HELPED TO PIONEER THE AGENT

 ORANGE ISSUE, BY JOINING THE 1986 CLASS 

 ACTION SUIT AGAINST THE DOW CHEMICAL 

 COMPANY, AND PASSING THE AGENT ORANGE

 SCREENING EXAM BY THE DOW CHEMICAL

 COMPANY THEN WITH THE HELP FROM

 WASHINGTON STATE SENATOR PATTY MURRAY OF

 MY HOME STATE OF WASHINGTON AT THE TIME

 REFERRED ME TO SEND MY PAPERWORK TO THE

 (LATE) U.S. SENATOR BROC ADAMS WHO MANAGED

 TO GET THE TRUTH OUT OF THE VA THAT WORKRD

 IN MY FAVOR THEN WHEN I HAD TO MOVE TO

 OREGON TO LIVE NOW AT THE OREGON VETERANS'

 HOME HERE IN THE DALLES, OREGON.  I THEN GOT

 HELP FROM U.S. SENATOR RON WYDEN OREGON

STATE REPRESENATIVE, AND U.S.

 CONGRESSWOMAN DARLENE HOOLEY OREGON

 STATE REPRESENATIVE AND THEY HELPED ALOT

 AND I'AM STILL CURRENTLY WORKING WITH THEM

 TO GET THE "AGENT ORANGE "SILVER ROSE

 MEDAL" SET UP AS AN AUTHORIZED "CHEMICAL

 WOUND MEDAL" EQUIVILIANT TO THE PURPLE

 HEART AND EXPAND IT'S PERAMATERS TO BE USED

 AND MEDICALLY COVERED AS A "CHEMICAL

 WOUND MEDAL" I THINK THIS KIND OF MEDAL

 HAS BEEN LONG OVER DUE FOR A LONG TIME

 NOW!  WE HAD TO PREPARE OURSELVES FOR THE

 NECULAR AGE WE CAN NOW PREPARE OURSELVES

 FOR THE "CHEMICAL BIOLOGICAL WARFARE AGE!"

 THIS WAY THE "SILVER ROSE" THAT ORIGINALLY

 WAS SET UP  BY THE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS

 CAN BE USED TO COVER ALL VETERANS' FROM ALL

 WARS AND FROM ALL GENERATIONS.  STARTING

 WITH "AGENT ORANGE AND VIETNAM ON

 FORWARD IN TO THE FUTURE GENERATIONS AS A

 "CHEMICAL WOUND MEDAL"  WITH FULL MEDICAL

 COVERAGE JUST LIKE THE PURPLE HEART COVERS

 BLOOD WOUNDS!! 

     HERE ARE THE POLITICIANS THAT I'VE HAD TO

 DEAL WITH  AND I STILL HAVE A LONG WAYS TO GO

    

POLITICIANS THAT I'VE HAD TO DEAL WITH HERE IN THE NORTHWEST FOR HELP WITH OR ABOUT AGENT ORANGE.

  ON THE FEDERAL AND THE STATE LEVEL I

I WANT TO MAKE A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO THE

POLITICIANS THAT HELPED ME GET TO JUST

WHERE I'AM RIGHT NOW TODAY ON THIS LEVEL!

        THANK YOU, FOLKS!

My personal dealings Agent Orange, with the VA, the 1986 Class Action Law Suit against the DOW Chemical  Company and the new Agent Orange Silver Rose Medal.     With the very medical papers that the VA denied me my claim on Agent Orange during the Agent Orange screening exam for the Class Action Law Suit on the DOW Chemical Company back in 1986. I then many years later resubmitted the same set of papers to the "Silver Rose Medal board and the Federal Government then granted me the Silver Rose medal through the former U.S. Congresswoman Darlene Hooley of Oregon.
Now Iam a Silver Rose recipient and my goal to get the bran new Agent Orange Silver Rose Medal into our Nations first "Chemical & Biological Wound medal" with full medical coverage just like the Purple Heart medal is our "Blood medal" for small arms fire. Iam currently working on this project by writing Washington DC, but I can't do it alone I'll need the help of other Veterans to also contact their Senators and Congressmen and women if we are to get a full coverage medical medal than we must fight for it like we've had to do with everything else! So will you join the fight? For here are the results of my first bout with the VA on Agent Orange posted below.
