Remembrance event planned on Monday for those affected by “Agent Orange”

Kosciusko Honor & Remember will host a time of remembering and honoring those who have lost their lives or have been affected by Agent Orange as well as chemical and biological exposure.

The event will happen on Monday from 7 until 8 PM at the third American Legion Memorial Circle at Warsaw’s Oakwood Cemetery.

Spokesperson Ken Locke added in a press release on Thursday, “The Vietnam War ended 45 years ago, but the battle continues for many Vietnam veterans. Nearly 3 million service members served in Vietnam and most returned home. But since then, thousands of Vietnam veterans have fought illnesses related to Agent Orange exposure.  This deadly toxin has impacted the lives of thousands of veterans and their families but is largely unknown to most Americans.”
