Impact of Agent Orange Susan Hammond and Jaquelyn Chagnon talked about the continuing impact of the U.S. military’s widespread use of Agent Orange as a defoliant during the Vietnam War. They used slides as they shared their experiences in the region and the work they were doing to help people with the birth defects and deformities they said were a result from living in areas sprayed with the herbicide. They said it was past time for the U.S. government to acknowledge these spraying operations, many of which remain classified, and provide further assistance to people still suffering ill effects.

“Living with Consequences of Agent Orange / Dioxin Fifty Years Later: An Update on the Situation in Vietnam and Laos from the War Legacies Project” was a program of the Partnerships for International Strategies in Asia (PISA), part of George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs. close
