Are you aware that August is Agent Orange Awareness Month? I only recently learned that this month is officially designated as such here S.RES.248 and here (Senator Collins’ website).
AO contained a known poison but because it was not weaponized or at least not classified as a chemical weapon (i.e., its target was not humans) its use was acceptable. There are now 15 diseases linked to AO exposure including Type 2 Diabetes, which my dad was diagnosed with in 2006. Like many soldiers, he was told not to worry about it; harmless they said.
