Agent Orange

The Wisconsin State Council of Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) is committed to inform every Wisconsin veteran who served in Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries from 1962 to 1975 of the possible maladies associated with the highly toxic herbicides or dioxins used for defoliation during the war.

Through advocacy led by VVA, Congress enacted into law the Agent Orange Act of 1991.  This Act empowered VA to declare certain maladies "presumptive" (i.e., presumed) to be the result of exposure to Agent Orange/dioxin.
