Agent Orange Event Planned In Salina

KSAL StaffMarch 11, 2014

A special Agent Orange town hall meeting is scheduled in Salina this weekend.

The Vietnam Veterans of America Salina Chapter is sponsoring the event this Saturday. Nationally recognized authorities will be available to address concerns and answer questions.

The U.S. military sprayed millions of gallons of Agent Orange and other herbicides on trees and vegetation during the Vietnam War. Several decades later, concerns about the health effects from these chemicals continue.

The Agent Orange town hall meeting is open to everyone. It will be held this Saturday from 2:00 until 5:00 at the Salina Chamber of Commerce Annex, located at 120 W. Ash Street.
