Mikey1- re you saying that the VA system has not ever contacted you or helped with an Agent Orange Claim? Also are you in Phoenix- the reason I ask is: there is a part time VA REP: that does nothing else than process the Veterans claim after one meeting with him, and you bring in your DD- 214 and any orders you might still have from Viet Nam- He can pin point where you were and all the sites where the chemicals were sprayed. That's the first thing that would help you allot getting your claim open( which goes much faster now with the new mandate by the President to process Viet Nam Veterans claims faster and to put them in the front of the pile- especially those with Agent Orange illnesses of any kind, I did this same process and it was completed in 4 months- But it takes the VA office I just mentioned to do the paper work proving where you were and that you were in fact spayed. And you are so right about how the people ( did not receive us as soldiers serving in real war- but as a form of people who committed crimes to the Viet Nam people to include murder and the killing of Children- which -not only isn't true, but they did not look or take time to research the facts of all the soldiers did for the people of South Viet Nam. The first time I came home -we landed at Travis AFB- at 4am, no one was there except the Air Force welcoming party and a Full Streak Dinner before leaving for home.( that was the best home coming we ever had- which I thank God for all those who understood why we were fighting. However the second time I came home- we landed in SF CA where there was hundreds of the people you talked about- It felt as if we had landed in a difference America. I served in the Infantry for many years before later on in life I studied to be an Army Chaplain- For the last 35 plus years. I have retired now do to many illnesses caused by Agent Orange. And the VA accepted all the facts from my doctors without any issues. But that's only been 3 years ago before all the claims were approved. So tell me how I can help you- and get information you need and what you may be looking for. I pray this makes scene and is a little help. In my prayers Brother. JJames.

Charly- I'm sorry, I think I didn't explain well enough. I was asking if anyone had server jerks in the night when you are sleeping- For me they have become worse as well as the feeling of falling more than before. I have been on the medication for 4 years now and does help with some things, Sorry for the mis-understanding. Jsouth

Hi Teresa, They keep trying to find something to help- great doctors and I thank God I have them- I've had a heart issue due to Agent Orange( My Heart Dr from the Mayo Clinic works with Vets with the affects of Agent Orange- which does affect the heart. The heart attack I had over a year ago was found to be caused by the chemicals- now it could be causing the lack of energy and whatever else. But we keep trying-right. Thanks the Lord for His strength-I have done. J JAMES
