Reflections of a Vietnam War Widow: It Doesn't End When They Come Home
I tell the story today because I believe one of the reasons the occupation of Iraq has been allowed to continue for as long as it has is that, beyond the relatively small circle of military families, the individual costs have been so successfully obscured. With the exception of the appalling images from Abu Ghraib (which were e-mailed home by soldiers themselves), we have been insulated from a war that is being fought in a manner that would sicken most of us if we had access.
Through my personal experience of pesticide poisoning and chemical exposures, resulting in the devastation of my own health and life. I know first hand about the abuse that follows as one becomes the victim of politics in fighting for adequate medical diagnosis, treatment and disability benefits. Many of our symptoms, and our battles, are very similar.
Most civilians believe they're being quite adequately protected from chemical hazards by industry and government alike. That's hardly the case. Visit our site Informed Choices.
Similar to the trust a civilian has in the system is the trust a soldier has going to war.....that he will not be forgotten or abandoned and that any illness he may acquire will be dealt with promptly and fairly. That's hardly the case either. ~Nancy

The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped. ~Humbert H. Humphrey
