Richard E. Phenneger, president and executive director of Phenneger & Associates, founded the Veterans Services Transparency Inc., a non profit organization dedicated exposing the truth about what is happening to veterans.
Phenneger wrote “Legacies of War, The Truth About Agent Orange in Vietnam.” In his documented expose, he wrote that his research showed that Vietnam Veterans have been victims of a decades-long scheme to systematically conceal the known effects of Agent Orange, resulting in denial of care for injuries, life-long suffering and greatly shortened life expectancy.
A registry is being created by representatives of the national office of Vietnam Veterans of America, headed by Mokie Porter, director of communications and marketing and Dr. Tom Burger, director of the VVA national health council.
Pasek summed up the feelings of the Vietnam veterans: “The (Vietnam) War is not over until all people are given the care they need.”
