The stark realities of the Forgotten and Ignored Vietnam War Veterans are expertly exposed by Dr. Robert L. McHenry in this explosive book. The wide-spread use of Agent Orange all over Southeast Asia is a dark secret, even today. Dr. McHenry was exposed to Agent Orange at Utapao, Thailand. Stationed there, he was exposed to this toxic herbicide that had a devastating effect on his health years later. This book documents his journey of where and how he was exposed and his long slog through the Veterans’ Administration’s process of qualifying for treatment. His methodical documentation and learned advice on how to navigate the VA medical care system is invaluable advice for these veterans.

Forgotten and Ignored Vietnam War Veterans by Dr. Robert L. McHenry is strongly recommended for every Vietnam era veteran, especially those stationed in Thailand. As he brings out, many veterans have been unknowingly exposed to Agent Orange and have serious health issues as a result. He follows this with invaluable advice on how to file for otherwise very expensive care and treatment. Dr. McHenry goes step-by-step with sharing his vast experience and invaluable advice on where to get the forms, how to fill them out, what to say, and what not to say. He documents the dark process the government has used to hide this outrage against humanity, but more importantly, he focuses on what to do about it. This is a must-read from a seasoned expert on the scourge of the Vietnam era – Agent Orange!
