National representatives from Vietnam Veterans of America will attend an informational meeting Saturday to provide information on the organization's efforts to create a registry of those impacted by the U.S. military's use of Agent Orange during the conflict.
The meeting will run from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday in the Kittinger Building, Room K-100, on the Erie Community College North Campus, Main Street and Youngs Road, Williamsville.
Organizers are calling this an educational meeting for Vietnam veterans and their families.
Vietnam veterans, wives of living and deceased veterans, along with children and grandchildren, are invited to attend to learn more about ongoing health issues related to Agent Orange and other chemical agents used during the Vietnam War. Other members of the public also are welcome.
Certified Veterans Service officers will be on hand to answer questions and assist any individual interested in making out a related claim.
