2010, Vietnam visit

In 2010, circa March, a delegation from Veterans for Peace visited Vietnam.

Paul Cox, the leader of the group, fought with the U.S. Marines in Vietnam.

Other members of the delegation, all members of Veterans for Peace, were Susan Schnall, a former Navy nurse who tended wounded soldiers during the Vietnam war at a California Navy hospital, Michael Uhl, a former Army counter-intelligence officer who served in Vietnam, Ken Mayers, a former Marine Corps major who served in Vietnam and Geoff Millard, an Army National Guard soldier who served in Iraq.

The veterans were in Vietnam for two weeks to visit people suffering from Agent Orange exposure, members and leaders of the Vietnamese Agent Orange Victims Association (VAVA), public health workers and officials of the Vietnamese government. They are gathering information to make the case to the U.S. government that the Vietnamese people should be compensated for the pain and suffering endured as a result of being exposed to Agent Orange.

Mike Ferner, a former Navy hospital corpsman and president of Veterans for Peace, was also a member of the VFP delegation to Vietnam.[2]
