Agent Orange Helpline
From an article by Mike Lazorchak in the Marine Corps Times April 23, 2001
Secretary of Veteran’s Affairs Anthony Principi recently announced America’s 2.3 million Vietnam veterans have a new national toll-free help to get answers to questions about Agent Orange Exposure, health benefits and health-care issues.
“Veterans may talk to a VA representative by calling the help line at 1-800-749-8387 from 8am to 4pm Central Time, Monday through Friday,” said Principi, himself a Vietnam veteran. “At other times, they may listen to recorded information on an automated answering system.”
VA officials predict the new help line will be very popular.
