These Vietnam vets are still fighting.
From the Agent Orange Quilt for Tears site, they carry on their struggle and look for allies:
In April 2000, the U.S. Congress authorized the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Commemorative Plaque, also known as the In Memory Plaque, to be added to the three-acre Memorial site on the National Mall. The plaque is intended to honor those Vietnam veterans who died after service in Vietnam, but as a direct result of that service, and whose names are not eligible for placement on the Memorial because of Department of Defense policies.
These vets are fighting for a suitable Plaque that doesn't get stepped on and draw water when it rains; a monument that speaks that Agent Orange and other victims who died after service in Vietnam have their humanity and service marked with hallowed ground.
We are asking that you please help us to not only address these concerns but also help to correct the condition of this national memorial that represents so many proud Vietnam Veterans who served their country honorably.
Sounds like a good idea.
