Vietnam Veteran Wives Veteran Center - Modest building, huge human resources

From the VietnamVetWives
Dear Secretary Shinseki,

I met with the Institute of Medicine at their open session Dec.16th 2010. I presented evidence showing a connection between Agent Orange and glioblastoma. I now enclose a report showing the various cancer rates in Australian Vietnam Veteran population. The Institute of Medicine routinely uses this statistical data form this cohort in the “Agent Orange Report”.

I bring to your attention table one on page 3: brain cancer rates 5.60 times higher than civilian populations, pancreas cancer is 7.7 times higher and all diseases of the digestive system 2.10 higher. I ask that you service connect all of the above cancers to all Vietnam Veterans as soon as possible. I am available to present more evidence and to speak with you at any time. I look forward to your responds.
