    widespread malady, be it from Agent Orange, PTSD, Gulf War Syndrome and now the need for prosthetic limbs, to wait until many of their would be patients have passed on before they admit they might be at fault. I feel that's why they are dragging their feet regarding the suicide rate of returning veterans. To them it's one less patient.
    Look how long it took for something as lethal as can be, Agent Orange, to be linked to any of the symptoms and illness brought on by bare chested and sweating airmen in Thailand loading the material, to the troops on the ground where it was spread right on top of their living quarters, mess tents and jungle through which they fought. They waited until most had passed before finding anything wrong with Agent Orange, which contained a particularly nasty Dioxin.
    There is a special place of Karma for those so called Scientist's who declared it safe and continued the lack of coverage by the VA
