America's Veterans


April 30, 2007- A study published in the journal "Cytogenetic and Genome Research" shows that exposure to Agent Orange, and other defoliants, has led to genetic disturbance in New Zealand Vietnam War veterans that continues to persist decades after their service. New Zealand Defense Force Personnel fought in the Vietnam War from July 1965 until November 1971 when more than 76,500,000 liters of phenoxylic herbicides were sprayed over parts of Southern Vietnam and Laos to clear vegetation from around military installations.
